The American Oak Kitchen Clock was sold with a coordinated tablet at its origin. It is now easier to find the clock than the tablet that goes with it. By its origin, it belongs to the shelf category. We could say that it is a hybrid clock. Illustrated: a kitchen clock in oak, the hardwood preferred by American manufacturers to stamp, with the help of a mechanical press powered by steam, the motifs so characteristic of these clocks. They were usually placed on a shelf hanging on a kitchen wall. These clocks were trendy in the early 20th century. This one is an Ansonia, model Kenmore (c. 1920) that I have completely restored.
