Musically Timed: Continental Clock Makers and their Markets

Throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries, keeping time and making music were increasingly paired attributes for a wide variety of exotic and even fantastic decorative artworks for the homes of the wealthy.

Towards the end of this period, musical picture clocks, animated tableaux, and Black Forest Trumpeter clocks were enjoyed by expanding markets fascinated by these examples of evolving and more affordable technology.

Explore how clock makers incorporated music into their works, and households added a wide range of music to their everyday lives. The Museum is open 11am to 5pm, Wednesday – Sunday.
