Oddly enough, the Barron seemed to share my fascinating with clocks. He had all kinds. I am including some below, because I think they are wicked neat!
|A mantel clock of gold leaf with crossing carriages|
|A small mantel clock foreshadowing Art Deco|
|Look at the man in the lower right for scale. This was just outside the Conservatory.|
|So this hung from the ceiling and you looked up to read it. Above the mechanism is a birdcage with a fake bird to sing the hours.|
|Just kind of cool|
|Okay - my favorite. It is black lacker desktop with 2 clocks. The lower for when writing at the desk and the upper for other people in the roof to see. The detail up top is amazing.|
