Model #7641 All are Mine, 1640 Rock Clock
18" H x 5" W x 6" D
In 1640 the "Waaguhr" was the first mechanical clock that was affordable by the new middle class in Europe. Its simple design allowed for only one hand indicating the hours. The average person of the Seventeenth Century measured time with only three times of day:sunrise, high noon, and sunset.
This clock tells a chilling story of the medieval mindset. The hand painted and hand carved figures depict the rich, the pious, the young, the old, and royalty. Death stands above them all swinging his scythe.
The mechanism is made of wood and is powered by a roughly hewn rock from the Black Forest.
"All are Mine" is made by Rombach und Haas and has a 2 year mfg. warranty.
