Stickley Hall Clocks
Craftsman clocks for hallway decorating purposes by Gustav Stickley.
¶ The pictures show two hall clocks, of the type usually known as grandfather clocks; Given a moderate skill in the handling of tools, the home worker can easily make a clock that will prove a quaint and satisfactory bit of furnishing and will have all the charm of an individual piece of handicraft made for the place it is to fill. Oak is the most appropriate wood for the cases of both these clocks, and the construction is very simple. The face may be made of wood with the figures burned in, or of a 12 inch plate of brass with figures of copper. If the latter is used, holes should be drilled in the plate to receive the pins which rivet on the figures. These pins are simply bent over after the figures are in place. In both cases the door at the back should have a silk panel in it so that the sound may easily pass through.
