Tick, tock...look what I got

Ah, ebay...how do I love thee? There was a box on my front porch this afternoon and I went from having only one lovely old battered clock to a collection of six lovely old battered clocks in a beautiful instant. I bought two lots from one seller and spent about the same on five clocks as I had on the first I purchaed (the fourth from the left).

Love these! And I certainly love that they don't keep time...I've never been a watch person myself and worrying about how much time I have left or don't isn't fun or productive. I just remembered there was another clock that came with all these that is more gold and I set it aside to sell in my booth, so I guess I'll have to go to the flea market tomorrow and spend a little time. And money. Twist my arm.

These old battered clocks bring real decorative power when grouped. For some reason they remind me of vintage typewriter keys. The gentle patina adds great emotion to a clock face.
I like to wonder who once set the alarm on the clock...did it awaken them each morning?
