So beautiful, you almost hate to destroy it. But alas, that's why we've made this beautiful antique clock. Reminiscent of the popular "Regulator" style pendulum clocks. From its invention in 1656 by Christiaan Huygens until the 1930s, the pendulum clock was the world's most precise timekeeper, accounting for its widespread use. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries pendulum clocks in homes, factories, offices and railroad stations served as primary time standards for scheduling daily life, work shifts, and public transportation, and their greater accuracy allowed the faster pace of life which was necessary for the Industrial Revolution.
This beautiful reproduction is expertly carved from balsa wood and stained a rich dark tone. It features a pane of breakaway glass that is 9.5" x 16". The clock hands are adhesive and you can set the time to whatever time you wish. (This clock does not have an active clock movement, but could be adapted to have one if desired.) The pendulum is stationary.
The clock is made entirely from balsa wood, breakaway glass and has a foam core back cover, so it's ready to be smashed/destroyed for a very dramatic scene!
The whole clock, including the breakaway glass panes weighs only 2lbs, 4 oz.
Overall dimensions, 24" High x 12.5" Wide x 6 Deep.
