Mantel clocks, or shelf clocks, are decorative clocks that sit on a shelf, desk, table, fireplace mantel, or anywhere you would like to display the time. These clocks became popular in the 1700s in Europe and were displayed on the mantel above the fireplace. Mantel clocks come with different movements — the 8 day running time that needs to be wound up once a week, the 2 week running time that needs to be wound up every 14 days, and the quartz movement that is battery operated. Even if you choose the battery-operated mantel clock, you can still have the antique design that the classic mantel clock is known for with a wood case, or you can get creative and go with a glass case with gold or silver embellishments.
