“The wood had faded to a dark gray-black because it was covered in so much dust and grime, it had been near water and sustained damage, and the silver face was covered in rust,” he said. The gargantuan timepiece is an “astronomical regulator clock ...

Willard Clock Museum highlights 100 years of clock-making in Grafton
When you think of clock making, you may imagine that the maker produces every part of the clock, from the time mechanism to the wooden frame. Actually, the Willards produced just the movements, which is the term for the clock mechanism. The clock face ...

Mind out of time
Anyway, Grandfather is a tall 36-hour clock with a dark wood case, fancy numbers painted on his face and even a dial that used to show the day of the month — that hasn't worked for a long time. He was made in England, a clock maker told me, and is ...

I have decided that I want to be an Ozarks hill fairy when I grow up. Why not. I can't help but wonder if your sweet little niece might not, once in a while, enjoy having a fun-filled Fairy Day with Auntie and Uncle. What a beautiful night. She should be hugged often, told great secrets, and give comfort on a stormy night. She should be served tea and cake, help in the garden or join in a picnic. When her time is over she should be carefully packed away to be fondly remembered another day.

CHHOTA IMAMBARA Chota Imambara, also known as Hussainabad Imambara is an imposing monument located in the city of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. Built as an Imambara or a congregation hall for Shia Muslims, by Muhammad Ali Shah, the third Nawab of Awadh in 1838, it was to serve as his own mausoleum and his mother, who is buried beside him. Also housed within the building, is the crown of Muhammad Ali Shah and ceremonial Tazias. The tombs of Muhammad Ali Shah and other members of his family are inside the imambara. This includes two replicas of the Taj Mahal, built as the tombs of Muhammad Ali Shah’s daughter and her husband. Water supply for the fountains and the water bodies inside the imambara came directly from the.
There are still a few repairs I need to do with this clock, but they are minimal cosmetic items: new minute hand nut, toothed hour hand washer to hide the square locking nut, acid-wash the hammer (I forgot to do this), and fix the pendulum (which... If you're not familiar with Comtoise clocks, they are French clocks made originally to be fitted into wooden longcases. The early ones (like this one with a crown wheel escapement) had simple circular bobs with folding rods, while later ones had large fancy pressed or lyre bobs. This clock also has silk thread suspension while later ones have a metal suspension springs. The earlier versions (in this style) had 2-piece brass fronts, and date to before 1840, while the fancier ones with larger pendulums started around 1860. This particular clock falls somewhere between these dates, and I would estimate that it's... The names on the dials of French clocks are of the retailer who sold the clock, rather than the clockmaker. I did not find any other "Radet Père"* clocks, but I did find 3 "Radet Puiné"* comtoise clocks (which I assume may have been made by the son. Other than this, I found one clock by another clockmaker in Luzy named "Mercier à Luzy".
