Antique French Clocks, More Than Just a Pretty Face

Share Article

Unlike the furniture, lighting, art and other static objects in the home, the clock is alive. As your antique clock dealer, we would be delighted to assist you in finding the perfect antique French clock.

Collecting antique French clocks typically begins with an infatuation. A certain clock catches one’s eye and makes their heart beat a little faster.

This flirtation brings the first clock into the household to serve as a practical timekeeper, with melodies striking on a bell or gong every half hour. This decorative accessory with aesthetic, intellectual, auditory and pragmatic talents soon endears itself to every member of the family with the affection afforded to a favorite pet.

Once ensconced in the psyche of the home and hearth, it is clear that this horological artifact is more than just another pretty face.

Unlike the furniture, lighting, art and other static objects in the home, the clock is alive. It has motion, sound and function to take it far beyond any other members of the household environment.

So the pleasure and companionship of the ever-ticking heartbeat of the clock in a room makes it abundantly clear that a room without clocks has less life, animation and soul. Fortunately, this is a simple problem to overcome with the help of your antique clock dealer. For if your taste runs to the style and quality of antique French clocks there are thousands of worthy and affordable orphan clocks awaiting adoption into a loving home. Being an antique clock dealer, we at the Solvang Antique Center are often overjoyed by the sight of newfound love with the adoption of one’s first clock.

French clockmakers of the 17th and 18th centuries were in fierce competition with the English, creating innovative technologies and designs, as well as astounding animated, musical and complex novelties for the French Court. These machines are among the most important and expensive status symbols of the era.

The variety, aesthetic diversity and horologically significant scope of French clocks available to today’s collectors are broad enough to spend a lifetime learning about and enjoying. As an antique clock dealer, we are sometimes asked for our expert opinion as to which clock a person should buy, but it is an individual choice. The antique clock you purchase should be one that you can enjoy and bond with over a lifetime.
