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.
How to Choose a Wall Clock. When people go shopping to choose a clock for their home, most people immediately think about functionality, and another additional factor at the time of purchase, which is the price. However, that is mostly a wrong approach regarding wall clocks. Wall clocks are more a piece of decoration than a useful clock, especially antique ones.
Are you interested in a nautical theme, or do you prefer a clock that is much more military in nature? If so, it is time for you to take a look at metal clocks. Metal clocks might be made of brushed aluminum for a bright and modern look or they might be made out of polished brass for something that is much more traditional. These clocks are usually round and the edges are usually fairly thick. This can go a long way towards helping your room develop the look that it wants.
For the den, the styles tend to be a little less serious and more playful. Sports, beer, cards, pool and gambling themes prevail for the younger and more adventurous set. Those with more sedate tastes will probably want to select something a little less brassy. Hunting and fishing themes or eye-catching large wall clocks with a weather or nautical theme are popular. Weather protected large wall clocks are also available for your porch or patio in a wide range of prices and styles.
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.
