Mantel & Table Clocks

Mantel & Table Clocks

Another style of clock that has existed for hundreds of years is the mantel clock. These clocks are designed to sit on a table or mantel piece, often to be displayed as a feature item in a room. First developed in France in the 1750s, mantel clocks were hugely popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. These earlier styles were mechanical in design, with many battery clocks becoming available in the modern day. One popular style of mantel clock is the tambour style, otherwise known as the Napoleon Hat clock. This unique shaped clock is still very popular today. Many more modern styles of table clock display exposed gears and shifting mechanics in the clocks, otherwise known as a skeleton clock. These timepieces are truly breathtaking as you watch the gears move slowly and come to appreciate the intricate details and craftsmanship that goes into each clock build.
