James Taylor said, "The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time." Our elegant Black and Gold Book Clock will aid anyone in enjoying the passage of time, and thereby, enjoying life. Standing 9.5” tall and 12.5” wide, item BC95 forms a 45 degree angle out of richly grained American walnut. On the left side, a circular black face is set on a golden plate. Roman numerals mark the hours as the two gold colored hands travel around the timepiece’s face. This classically styled timepiece includes a lifetime warranty. Across from the clock, a black brass engraving plate rests in the rounded edges of the luxurious walnut. The plate comes trimmed in a beaded accent, which surrounds a spacious area for personalization. We can insert up to 12 lines of type in this space. As always, our engraving is free.
