 Many of the more expensive of these clocks carry the maker’s mark that authenticates its value and make. The face of such clocks is fashionably decorated and is distinguished by the typefaces, colours, and material. The original mantle clocks also have handles attached to them.


 The antique mantle clocks very often had their cases and mechanisms made by different artisans.


 The clocks have very ornate hands that are set in fashionable woodwork. Another value adding feature is the wood used in the making of such clocks. The quality, colour and weight of the clock are also very important.


 Usually, these clocks also have chimes that make soothing sounds after every half hour and on the hour. These clocks usually need key winding after every eight to fourteen days.


Antique French Mantle Clocks are usually very ornate,some are Gilded, either by means of covering some of the clock with Gold Leaf, or another method was to cover with Ormolu which means a very thin coating of gold produced by placing an amalgam of gold and mercury on the clock then evaporating the mercury in a furnace; this idea was stopped due to the poisonous vapour of mercury entering the atmosphere.


Clocks being of the colour black were often called Ebonised.


The whole of the above also applies to German, Italian and some American clocks.


Such clocks as Skeleton Clocks rely upon the unique way in which the observer can view the movement gear train, often made completely from Brass, thus highly coloured painted parts are unnecessary.


Westminster Chime Clocks often produce extremely sonorous sounds these are well worth the necessary investment simply to enjoy the sounds produced.   German Chiming Clocks are also a pleasure with which to listen.
