We have been working day and night transporting musical clocks and installing the new exhibit at The Willard House & Clock Museum. This has been an all consuming process for the last several months, so if I failed to return your phone call or respond to an email, please forgive me. My antiques business has definitely suffered during this project and Matt is just as busy as I am. We hope to soon get back to locating great pieces and spending the proper amount of time working with our clients to place those things in the proper collections.
The exhibit is coming together nicely and most of the clocks are in the building. It is entitled Keeping Time, Musical Clocks of Early America and will include 38 functioning musical clocks (mostly American). The image is a graphic from the table of contents and really gives an idea of how amazing these clocks are. The exhibit will be open on Sunday, October 6th and will run only six weeks, until November 17th. The museum hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10-4:00.

My wife and I, and my Brother in law and Sister in law came down to see the Musical Clock exhibit on Oct 31st. It was absolutely fantastic ! Kate was a fine host, and her stories and knowledge of the music of the time added greatly to the experience. As you mentioned, the clocks were stunning examples of fine craftsmanship... The two displayed movements that were removed from their respective cases were a nice touch also. My compliments and thanks for all the hard work involved in bringing this fine display to the Willard House !
