This is a new but old addition for the kitchen.
Gold anodised Smiths wall clock. I would have preferred chrome but the gold is growing on me.
Smiths started as a family business making clocks and watches in 1850s England. In the 1930s they were mass producing clocks by the many thousands per week. They ceased making clocks for the domestic market in the late 70s.
I like it because it reminds me of an airport clock. I can pretend to catch the 8.40 am Brisbane to Canberra flight while I'm making the school lunches.
Actually, I like it because it is a good way to teach the two younger boys how to read the time and it suits the mid-century vibe I love so much.
