Skeleton Clock Collection

The skeleton clocks shown exhibit some unusual feature; an interesting mechanical design, rare or complex escapement, mechanism, remontoire or frame design. The following adapted quote nicely sums up my fascination with skeleton clocks and clocks in general where one can see the mechanical movement. "A well made skeleton clock is a joy to behold - an elegant confection of brass and steel, wood, marble and glass, its' mechanicals visible inside its' crystal case, its' clockwork heart ticking away happily as it takes the pulse of the day."1
