Victorian Waterbury Mantle Clock ca. 1850



Victorian Waterbury Mantle Clock used to be a household name in the late 19th & early 20th century.  This clock is decorated with faux marbling, which was a popular finish dating back to the 1840s. Considered a fine art at the time by some and despised by others as a sign of society’s decline, historic faux marbling is now uncommon and unusual to come by, and requires a skilled hand to repair. Luckily this clock is in excellent shape, with a lovely patina, and is still in good working order. The face opens and the clock is wound with a key.
