Time For Some History
It has been said that the word "clock" is ultimately derived from the Celtic words clagan and clocca, meaning "bell." Did you know clocks that operate silently, or without chimes chimes, bird songs or other indicators of the passing minutes, are commonly referred to as timepieces. Timepieces have been used for centuries to measure the passing of time. The earliest clocks, often in the form of sundials, relied on the sun. Although antiqued, our clocks are all battery operated so you do not need to worry about them not working once the sun sets.
Clocks have been produced in America since around the mid 1850's, and production reportedly began in Massachusetts. Antique clocks can be found in antique markets and malls alike, each carrying a piece of personal history with them. This clock adds a nostalgic look to a kitchen or entryway while telling you the present time all day long, and adds a comforting look among your primitive home accents and timeless collectibles.
Electric clocks have been in use since 1840 when the invention of the dry cell battery made it possible to create a clock that was powered by electricity. You can enjoy the time you spend studying these clocks as they all feature impressive motifs and imagery appealing to any home. Enhance a farmhouse themed kitchen, create a primitive country scene or add a beach-scape look to any room with the options shown here. Unlike the early electric clocks of centuries ago, these will operate much longer.
Can you imagine if we still had to tell time with only the advent of sundials or water clocks to aid us?

With options that also feature a temperature gauge, it is easy to feel encouraged to spend more time outdoors enjoying your gardening or the company of friends on the porch. Crafted from rust-free recycled aluminum, these options will withstand the tests of, well, you guessed it: time.
