Consider it done Glen. 8)

Could even record my own Grandfather (Clock) for the shop. :D

Another clock

I thought that the desk in the shop would be enhanced by a French Clock albeit the painting in this size of photo looks pretty poor. :oops:
It is but 16mm tall.

Hi Gerry,

That's a nice little clock.... but it's 25 minutes ahead of the long case in the back. :?

Also, I've a feeling that a 5'6" clock may be called a Grandmother. I know more about horticulture than horology, and precious little about that. :shock: Somebody will enlighten us.

So, where's it gunna go? Mantlepiece, or desk?

Right here Steve:

You're correct it would be a Grandmother however I guess Petite Properties, from whence it came, considered retailing it as a Grandmother might have reduced its appeal. :roll:
Having more than 10 clocks dotted around our bungalow not all show the same time, primarily because I don't wind them all. :lol:
Perhaps the French Clock is just a showpiece, might be right in 25 minutes if they've remembered to wind the Grandmother. :wink:

I'm afraid that this building is Gnever going to find a home on the proposed layout as my sight has deteriorated to the extent that bad eye is distorting vision of good eye when working close-up :cry:
Anyone in UK interested in building - cannot be posted!

Wow Gerry, that's a shame about the eye. Isn't there any way to correct the 'bad' one or cover it while working? Sight is such a precious thing. I hope things work out for you.
