5 Reasons to Never Part With Your Antique Clocks

by Gregory Burton

Have you been thinking about selling your antique clock? Perhaps you received it as a gift that you no longer want, or maybe you want to upgrade your living room and are worried it might clash with your new design. While these all may sound like good arguments to sell, we believe there are so many good reasons to never part with your antique clocks. Here’s why.

It Could Be Rare

Did you know that many of the surviving clocks from the 1500s through the 1700s are in museums and private collections? It’s very rare that you would find one auctioned off or in an antique marketplace because of their value. Even those from the 1800s onwards are hard to find. And if you have one from these eras or a limited edition one made of a specific type and design, it may be rarer than you think, which is all the more reason to keep it.


Timeless Décor Piece

An antique clock is one of those timeless décor pieces that have been an integral part of home décor for centuries. It not only adds personality to your home, but it’s also one of the only décor features that are not quickly impacted by other design elements or your layout. Through their unique and hand-crafted designs, an antique clock can give your home the style, elegance and charm it needs, no matter what style you choose.

Has Sentimental Value

Most antique clocks are passed down through generations and carry sentimental value. In many cases, they are even a legacy piece for families. But even if you received it as a gift or were lucky enough to discover it at an antique dealer, chances are it holds some significant emotional value that makes it worth holding onto.

Makes A Great Conversation Piece

Every clock has a story. Their old-world charm, unique songs, and intricate designs date back to specific regions, eras and countries. This makes them an excellent conversation piece.

It Adds to Your Mystique

Having a magnificent Antique timepiece in your home will undoubtedly have your guests wondering about its origin and how you came to find it. Having these questions swirling around in their heads will build up your level of mystique and depth in their eyes, adding to your overall cool factor.
