new orleans parquetry clock 1880

We had such a great time in New Orleans hunting for antique clocks.  We spent one day walking on Magazine Street.  We found a clock in a shop on Magazine street.  The dealer said it was French and that he had bought it in the Paris flea market.  The clock happened to be an American clock called a Parquetry clock and they have been traditional made by prisoners.  The clock is of an official building with a clock tower.  It was made in the 1920s.  Please look for this clock on our webpage as a new addition.
