Tick-talk! Conversational clocks

A kitchen is not quite a kitchen without a beautiful clock bestowed upon its walls. From vintage-inspired finds to iconic pieces of design, here are a few of our favourite statement-making timepieces – each set to cause plenty of admiration in the abode.

Bamboo Doily clock from Uncommon, available on Etsy.com.

A little background on the brand: Uncommon are a husband and wife design duo who describe themselves as “a new branch of home d├ęcor design based on simple old-fashioned sensibilities and the precision of modern computer-aided devices”. The result? Striking, wholly unique pieces.

Scallop clock from Uncommon, also available on Etsy.com.

The Solari clock was originally designed by Gino Valle in the 60s. Available at good auctioneers and, if you’re extremely lucky, eBay.

Australian Doug Jackson crafts these beauties as a hobby. Available at his website Dougswordclocks.com.

Retro-inspired ‘Milk’ clock. Available at newgateclocks.com

Not just for walls: from statement wall-pieces, to statement jewellery (we couldn’t help but add this to our list, it’s just so utterly charming).

Grandfather clock necklace, available at Accesorize.co.uk.
