Sicilian clocks, hand painted ceramic clocks

Ceramics is not something usually associated with clocks, but in Italy, particularly in Sicily they are very commonplace. Sicilian ceramic clocks are often in the shape of a plate with the clock face and mechanics in the centre. Another popular type of clock is a ceramic tile sitting inside a handmade wooden frame. All the plates and tiles for these ceramic clocks are hand painted and often depict the fruits of the area, such as lemons, oranges, pomegranites and olives.
