Clocks are truly an ingenious item. In the past, famous people such as King Louis XVI of France loved to tinker with his collection of clocks. It was once said he would have been far happier as a watchmaker than a King. Louis XVI had the time and money for a watch and clock collection. At one time, only the wealthy class could afford them. An indoor or outdoor wall clock was beyond the means of many people until the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The town and/or local church may have had one, but the average person did not.

Today, we can choose from many different makes and types of clocks. Wall clocks have remained popular even in an age where clocks are digital. The latest models can resemble antiques or come in riotous colors. They may be made of:
