This important new book brings a unique British folk art to a wide audience and it will not only be an essential reference work for horologists and collectors, but introduces the subject to those interested in the history of a form of commercial art found in many houses and cottages from the eighteenth century to the present day. Painted clock dials range from sophisticated high-quality artwork, sometimes specially commissioned, to simple naive painting to satisfy a mass market.
After a long period of being ignored by collectors, it is now appreciated that painted dials are an essential part of horological history and development. The author draws on many years of restoring, documenting and researching painted clock dials and compiling the largest library of photographs, to present the most detailed study to date.
The Art of the Painted Clock Dial includes 730 illustrations, almost 520 of them in color. About Crunruh Books - Rhymes with from you.
