Give a beautiful anniversary clock to yourself that special someone. Anniversary clocks and carriage clocks make an excellent gift for that upcoming wedding, bridal shower, birthday or Christmas. Their elegant design and rotating pendulum add a soothing influence in any room. Charming to the max, anniversary clocks are a treasure to last a lifetime.
The anniversary clock was a product of the Victorian age appearing around the year 1880. Then, it was called an anniversary clock because it only needed to be wound once a year on the anniversary of the day it was put into service. Things have changed a bit in the last hundred years, but the basic style and function of the anniversary clock is a classic that has withstood the test of time.
Today, the anniversary clock may only need to be wound once a year, but that is not why most people purchase one. It has become a tradition that an anniversary clock is given as a gift to married couples on their first year anniversary of being married. After that, the anniversary clock finds a place of honor in the home and reminds the couple of the special day when they were united in the bonds of matrimony.
The anniversary clock is easy to recognize because of its elegant shape and classic design and that fact that it has a special rotating pendulum that helps the clock keep the time. Anniversary clocks come in gold and silver finishes with a few models encased in genuine finished hardwoods.
Anniversary clocks do not need be purchased for a wedding anniversary; they are furniture accessories and can be put on a fine wood table or on the mantle over the fireplace.
