How do Mantel Clocks Work?

Mantel clocks are wound by using a clock key, which is inserted into a hole near the dial. Most traditional mantel clocks are mechanical in movement, and therefore will require winding every seven days.

What Antique Wall Clocks Are Most Valuable 

The most valuable wall clocks, are often the most sought-after pieces. For this reason, German & French Wall Clocks between the 18th – 19th Century often can be seen to be the most expensive or valuable wall clocks during auctions. 

Bracket Clocks For Sale

Bracket clocks are much like carriage & mantel clocks. They are the perfect clock for sitting upon your mantelpiece, or office area, just as mantel clocks are, the bracket clocks are mechanical clocks. The main difference between a traditional bracket / mantel clock is the age. An 8-day Bracket clock is significantly older than the standard French carriage clock or mantel clock

They were made with the aim of being hung up, although this wasn’t always the case, as many homeowners preferred having the clock in an easy to reach area. This is why we have clocks known as ‘wall bracket clocks’

What is the country of origin of the bracket clock?

Made in the 17th and 18th century, it’s unclear where the bracket clock originated, due to a mass amount of both German bracket clock styles and French bracket clock options, however it is clear that they were developed throughout Europe and were widely popular as portable pendulum clocks. 

However, the first documented bracket clock was created by Nicolas Delaunay, a popular French Watchmaker, in 1735
