One Hand Clock
One Hand Clock

This was made with one hand. Its a simple clock. It's been serviced for cleaning and oil only. It's over 200 years old. The face was redone at some point a long time ago. Each hour is quartered with two dots between hash marks. Thus each dot represents five minutes. I have memories of this clock in my grandmother's house back around 1960 and it has been in my father's house since 1966. Now it's in mine. -- --Arthur Zapf, April 8, 2015
