The Saturday Seven: Favorite Clocks in My Collection
#1 "Little Ben Linden"- I've had this mantle clock for over 27 years. It was a gift from my parents and has always been quite special to me.
#2 "Lord Sligh"- I acquired this gracious clock about 18 years back. I saved up to be able to afford this clock because I had my eye on it for months.
#3 "Hyacinth"- A more recent addition to my collection, Hyacinth holds the clock portion in her hand and it swings back and forth, swaying ever-so-gently.
#4 "'William"- A gift from my grandfather who knew how well I liked clocks. It is an antique with a hand painted porcelain face, and an elegant, solid brass carved frame.
#5 "Chason"- Named after the store from which I purchased this timepiece. I always enjoyed going to Chasons in downtown Providence to shop for such lovely things to collect.
#6 "Duke of Wellington"- Not an especially unique, but I always loved this clock because I had it with me when I lived in England. It has very special memories for me.
#7- Midcentury Modern Sunburst Clock- the epitome of Palm Springs Style.
Bonus entry-A pseudo art deco clock, but nothing special.
