Grandfather Clocks

Time was an important concept to the people of the Arts & Crafts movement. One of the ways they demonstrated that is by the prominent display of a Grandfather clock. Also known as a long case, tall case or hall clock, these imposing pieces were a constant visible, and often audible reminder of the flow of time. Our Grandfather clocks can be designed in the size and appearance you prefer, and feature your preference of movement, from the convenience and accuracy of a modern quartz movement, to the authenticity of a weight powered escapement movement. And with or without chimes.

Wall Clocks

The first clock in the typical Arts & Crafts home almost certainly one of those old metal windup alarm clocks with the two bells on top and the clapper that banged back and forth between them when the alarm went off. Functional, practical, and as clunky as things come.

But the second clock was likely to be a wall clock in the Arts & Crafts style. Desert Craftsmen offers a wide range of Arts & Crafts designs with an austere, functional clock face in a consistent style.
