Currently Featured:  American Weight-Driven Clocks

Early American clock makers were dependent on European sources for fabricating clock springs to power their movements.  The traditional solution to that problem was to create weight-driven movements.

Because of the distance required for the weights to drop, clock cases were relatively large.  With the Industrial Revolution, spring-driven clocks were made, reducing case size and freeing cabinetmakers to create new designs.
Production of weight-driven clocks still continued, however, principally for precision timepieces.  The "round head" case was a popular style whose production lasted into the early 20th century. 
We are featuring a number of these wonderful clocks as well as those with calendar functions.  Please click on the thumbnails below for more pictures and information about each piece ...
