Clock making was a highly-esteemed craft in the 18th century. Due to the expense of the materials and hours of labors, timepieces were not widely owned in the American Colonies. Each clock part had to be made and fitted separately, and decorative details helped create a work of art that was both functional and beautiful. This collection celebrates the artistry and creativity of these tradesmen, bringing to life the sculptural clock hands that adorn special time pieces in the Colonial Williamsburg archives.
