These highly collectable pieces are available in a range of materials including brass, oak, wood and mahogany.
Antique mantel clocks are designed to sit on top of fireplaces and mantel pieces in living rooms and dining rooms. You'll find a range of sizes and designs from different periods in history: from the ornate to the minimalist.
Depending on the period you prefer, mantel clocks are available in classic brass and wooden styles or decorative hand painted ceramics, glass and marble.
Antique carriage clocks are similar in style to mantel clocks and typically feature a handle located on the top. While they were initially created to carry while travelling, nowadays they are displayed on mantelpieces and shelves within the home.
Antique carriage clocks tend to be rectangular and boxed in shape and are made from brass, steel and glass.
Antique bracket clocks are designed to stand on a wall bracket and are among the most popular varieties of antique clock. They can be placed anywhere within the home and will always make a statement.
The iconic design of an antique grandfather clock is instantly recognisable by its tall wooden frame and long pendulum. They can also be recognised by their chimes, ringing on the hour, and also half hourly, depending on the style you choose.
Grandfather clocks are made from heavy woods such as mahogany, walnut and oak and typically measure between 1.8 and 2.4 metres. Because of their height, these floor standing clocks require more space within your home and are the largest you'll find.
