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.
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!"
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 may cover centuries but always give off visual pleasure. Without clocks life would be chaotic. Most humans wear them on their wrists, keep them next to their bed, and display them in almost every room of the house. Although often, they may never pay much thought to their clocks and their function.
Large Wall Clocks - Stylish, Trendy, Practical. Large wall clocks are one of the more recent and dramatic decorating trends. They`re "in" in a big way - and for a host of very good reasons. For starters, the clocks are stylish, trendy, decorative, practical and widely available at prices from ridiculously expensive to embarrassingly cheap. Anyone planning a major or minor do-over to change the look and character of any room in the home, and that includes a patio or porch, should give serious consideration to a large wall clock as an important element in the face lift.
