Enamel wall clocks make great kitchen clocks
Enamel wall clocks were extremely popular in the early 20th century and were highly collectible, todays enamel wall clocks make great clocks for your kitchen
Enamel wall clocks are made by applying an enamel paint that air dries to a hard, usually glossy, finish. Typically the term "enamel paint" is used to describe oil-based covering products, usually with a significant amount of gloss in them, however recently many latex or water-based paints have adopted the term as well. The term today means "hard surfaced paint" and usually is in reference to paint brands of higher quality, floor coatings of a high gloss finish, or spray paints. Many people like enamel wall clocks because of their distinctive looks and also because many of them can be cleaned with a dry cloth without messing up the clock design.
