My grandfather’s clock

Clock face

Lewes was famous for its clockmaking in the 18th and 19th centuries, and I saw some fine examples at the Anne of Cleves House. This one has a lovely decorated face set within a gilded frame. It made me think of the song “My Grandfather’s Clock”. In fact, the song is responsible for how the longcase clock came to be known as the grandfather clock. I bet most people – including me – wouldn’t know to call it anything other than a grandfather clock.

Wooden door detail

Time. As seen in the grain of the wood.

I love the handmade character of the door. Nothing is quite straight, and you know that it wasn’t made in a factory churning out multiples of exactly the same product with the same exacting measurements.
