Mantel Clocks are very collectible, especially antique Seth Thomas and Simon Willard Mantel Clocks. There are many to choose from and can be bought or researched on this page.
Shelf Clock is another name for the Mantel Clock but isn't used as often. The Mantel Clock is made to sit on the mantel above the fireplace. Since a lot of homes don't have fireplaces anymore they are placed on a shelf or piano.
Mantel Clocks are usually very decorative with beautiful ornate work and usually don't have handles for carrying them.
The French first produced the Mantel Clock in the 1750's and one of the most popular was the French Empire mantel clock. They were made in the early 1800's and used beautiful classical artwork designs on these clocks. Statues and other figures were sometimes attached. For example one clock had the figure of George Washington in full military dress with an eagle above the clock face. This clock is in a museum today. Photo can be seen above.
In the United States Simon Willard made some artistic shelf clocks in the early 1800's and is considered masterpieces today. If a vintage Simon Willard's Shelf Clock is found in excellent condition it can be worth anywhere from $50,00 to $250.00 depending on the condition and design.
