What a find! This GORGEOUS clock was part of the Winterthur Collection. For those of you unfamiliar, Winterthur is a huge estate with a sprawling mansion "summer home" which was owned by the DuPonts of Delaware. Currently it is a museum with a wealthy collection of artwork, including a number of pieces from China, like this one. I found this quartz ceramic mantle clock, with its rich deep red, navy and gold decorative painted sloped sides, in a discount store. It had a chip in the paint on the front side. I bought it and covered it with an array of mosaics that complimented the color scheme. I added a few charms as creative embellishments – a fleur-de-lis, a gold Roman coin, a silver skeleton key, a bronze owl, and even a clock, for a touch of whimsy!

A heavy, high quality piece, this clock measures approximately 10" wide x 6" high x 3.25" wide with a fairly large clock face surrounding by a coppery-gold rim. The back is solid red with a hole that can be used to push out the clock face to change the AA battery (the face can also be pulled out by grasping the rim and pulling it away from the casing). The bottom has pads to help protect it from scratching furniture.

This is truly a special piece that epitomizes the concept of my shop – giving new life to an artistic treasure that once was thought ruined by a flaw... giving it a new "second look." It would make a stunning gift or a very special conversation piece that would dress up anyone's home decor.
