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.
