Antiques Aren’t Just for the Roadshow
There’s no doubt about it. Antiques are the thing to collect. These pieces are functional, made from natural materials that are almost disappearing and are beautiful to look at. An old armoire can be the centerpiece of a living room. It will command attention with its smooth wood panels and curvy legs.
A cuckoo clock hanging on the wall commands the same attention. Its imposing figure is complemented by the sweet sound of the cuckoo bird announcing the time by the hour. The first cuckoo clocks were invented in Germany. Today, the modern cuckoo clock uses the same mechanism as the antique ones. Designs have evolved but you can still find old-fashioned grandfather cuckoo clocks.
