There’s nothing like a roaring fire in a fireplace; for many homeowners a fireplace is an absolute necessity; that which sets their home apart, creates a welcome focal point around which their family gathers, and warms their rooms on cold winter nights. For many, just as important as the fireplace itself is the mantel under which it sits. A mantel can frame a fireplace appropriately and add a sense of character and style to a room specifically, and a home at large.
Decorating a mantel is a personal reflection of style. There are some homeowners for whom a mantel is simply not complete without a mantel clock. The history of mantel clocks began in late 1700s France when this style of clock was first created. Mantel clocks were quite unique at the time due to their small size and ability to be moved from place to place.
Mantel clocks can sit on tabletops, shelves, or in a variety of locations throughout a home; but on fireplace mantels they are especially attractive.
