zzof. Clock. October 11th , 2017.
The next instrument was Sundials from Egypt which marked the daily progress of the suns movement across the sky. This method was known to be accurate and useful. You can still purchase clocks that look like sundials today. These were made of brass and only the rich could afford them. Briton transformed the brass dials with painted ones. These were inexpensive and clocks started being used for decoration as well as keeping time.
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.
Clocks keep cultures and societies united and functioning. Most western cultures value punctuality especially in the business community. There is a saying, "Time is money!"
Modern large wall clocks are constructed from many different materials which include metal, glass, plastic, wood and even high density fiberboard that is laser cut. For a modern and rich look, a clock of silver and gold cannot be beat for an elegant dining room. If your home has a lot of antiques, a wooden clock made of distressed wood that matches the antique furniture will tie everything together. Also, a pendulum clock looks old fashioned and traditional in style. The swinging pendulum and melodic chimes will evoke nostalgic feelings of a time gone by.
The first thing you should decide when buying a wall clock is what size to get. The larger wall clocks can be anywhere from the two to four feet range. This obviously requires some open wall space. A clock this size will be quite stunning and draw the eye but be careful that there is not too much going on in the room otherwise you could get a cluttered result. If you have the space, a bright or colorful clock that carefully mixes well with the rooms theme can really draw some attention and become a conversation piece.
