Displaying Your Antique Clocks Correctly
A lot of people start collecting antiques almost accidentally, and they start with one, then another, and so on until all of a sudden they have a collection. If this sounds familiar to you and you are wondering how you can display your antique clocks and show them off in all their working glory, here are some tips to get you started. After all, there is no point in having a beautiful antique clock if you have nowhere to show it off.
A Clock On Display In Each Room
Without going to too much trouble, you can easily display your antique clocks and have one in each room of your home. If you live in an old house with lots of fireplaces, you have somewhere in each room to set a clock, and you can also mount certain types on the wall, or put up some shelves.
If you live in a small house you may think that it is a drawback, but size or the lack of space shouldn’t hinder you to display your beautiful collection of clocks. There are things that you can do to create more space and give you an area to display, which will also allow you to go out to look for more antique clocks for sale.
A Small Display Stand
If you have a few clocks and you require somewhere to show them off, you can always consider purchasing an antique display cabinet. If you shop around, you will find that there are lots of different styles available, and they do not have to cost you a fortune. A beautiful display cabinet from an old shop is an excellent way to showcase your collection and show off your amazing collection of timepieces.
A Room For Your Clocks
If you have room in your home and the children have left the house, you can always dedicate an entire room for your collection. You can use a mixture of display stands, cabinets, and shelves to display your collection and keep all your antique clocks in one place. If you are a part-time horologist and you like to tinker and repair your clocks yourself, you can even set up a small workshop with all the tools you require. You can have a room in your house where you can work on your clocks and also display them, offering you a retreat from your everyday life.
A Digital Display Of Your Clocks
If there is no way that you could display your clocks in your home without moving to a bigger house, then there is still an option available to you. You can show your best clocks around your home, and then for the rest of your collection, you can take high-quality photographs of them and store the images digitally. You can also get electronic photo frames, put the pictures of your clocks on a USB thumb drive, and display these in the photo frame, rotating through all the images you have loaded.
These are a few ways that you can display your collection of clocks around your home, and there are others besides these. Make sure that you take excellent care of them and ensure that you keep them wound, and your antique clocks could be around for hundreds of more years.
