Amish clocks add a traditional elegance

by Tom Grimes

In this day and age, the traditional wall clock finds itself increasingly marginalized. However, there are times when items such as a cell phone or computer screen are not in immediate sight and the convenience of an Amish clock makes itself known.

An beautiful clock instantly adds elegance to a parlor or or bedroom. Whether a quartz wall clock or one that sits on your nightstand, these solid wood timepieces are built to last a lifetime and will be treasured for generations to come.

The Amish Mission clock doubles as a storage cabinet. The outside is constructed in Grandfather style, offering a hidden storage space underneath.

Alternatively, the Amish Shaker mantel clock will rest regally on top of your fireplace and those who own it have the choice of two melodies to play on the hour.

The Windsor wall clock is a gorgeous and simple piece with two decorative weight shells, a rich brass-colored face and a swinging Lyre pendulum. All of these clocks have nighttime silencers so your sleep will go undisturbed.

For a bit more flare, readers may consider the WS3 Weather Station, which features a small clock in addition to a dialed thermometer, barometer and hygrometer.
