These very factors have meant that this type of oak clock is ideally suited to many of today's customers, who seek simplicity and small stature to fit well within a limited modern ceiling height.This type of case is often called today a 'cottage' clock or perhaps a 'farmhouse' clock, these being modern terms we have coined to describe that small, homely type of clock, with which we feel comfortable and which does not stand pompously looking down at us in the way a mahogany 'Chippendale' clock might.Some clockmakers also signed their work, adding their initials or signature to the clock face, which narrows the clock's age to a specific period.Because the hands of the clock often broke and were replaced, the detail work in the spandrel offers a better option for dating the clock.As a native Californian, artist, journalist and published author, Laurie Brenner began writing professionally in 1975.She has written for newspapers, magazines, online publications and sites.Cheaper versions were made from about 1690 by provincial clockmakers and for these oak was used, being a far less costly timber, though occasionally pine was used at a lesser cost still.

A pine case, usually sold originally with a painted surface, cost about half the price of oak, at ten shillings (£0.50).Grandfather clocks, also called longcase clocks by horologists, were invented after Dutchman Christiaan Huygens applied a pendulum as a clock-winding device in 1656.But it wasn't until about 1670 when clockmakers mastered the workings of the pendulum for accurate timekeeping in conjunction with an anchor escapement -- the mechanical device that gives a pendulum its swing.Against these costs a London eight-day clock in its case of fine walnut veneers (very different in cost from solid walnut) might cost thirty pounds.Simplicity was everything in this early period, in terms of both clock and case, because it kept the price down to such as rural customers were willing to pay, and kept the height down to fit within the ceiling of the less grand homes the clock was aimed at.Grandfather clocks with moon dials appeared in clocks made from 1770 through 1830.
