The Hands of Time - Wall Clocks. The first time pieces started approximately 6,000 years ago for religious rituals. These devises were often candles and lamps. Farmers used sections of time for planting, growing and harvesting. It was not necessary to know the exact time.
All clocks have inner workings that would surprise and amaze you. We usually just take it for granted. There are analog clocks which have a face and hands and battery operated and there are digital clocks which are usually powered by an electric current with number displays.
Most clocks are mass produced now using cheaper materials such as plastic and metals. Most Americans find that clocks are cheaper then most paintings to help fill their empty walls. They also are a status symbol and bring elegance and character to one`s surroundings.
Another type of clock that can be a bit more discreet is the wooden wall clock. This type of clock is ideal for any room that is decorated around natural materials. Within wooden clocks, there are several types of different kinds of woods, colors, shapes and textures. It all depends on your preferences and budget to go for one or the other. But, please, avoid buying imitation wood. A clock attracts plenty of attention, and you don`t want your visitors looking at a piece of plastic, do you? You are left to choose the one you like, and combine it with the rest of the decoration at home.
The first antique wall clocks were called lanterns. They were made out of brass, very heavy and were hung on walls. The concept of personal clocks was introduced in the 17th century.
