We have written on our Blogs about grandfather clocks in The White House over many years, including the Oval Office, and the President’s Private Office. The antique grandfather clocks have graced the White House for many generations over time. If only the clocks could talk, what stories they would tell.
Less chronicled than the White House grandfather clocks, are the wall clocks and mantel clocks that also grace and have added to the decor of the USA’s most well known house for many generations. We will very soon post a picture of this Wall Clock, known as a banjo clock, that currently hangs in the White House.
There are also mantel clocks, and one we will soon definitely show a picture of, is a ships clock set which include a clock and a barometer, and which we believe were most likely made by Chelsea Clocks.
STAY TUNED for some very exciting photos we will soon be sharing.
