Dealer Spotlight: Old As Time Antiques

Ken Jacobsen of Old As Time Antiques started trading in 1981, selling antique clocks and furniture at antique fairs and markets.  It's easy to see why antique clocks hold a fascination with Ken - the superb engineering produced without the help of computerised production methods and the intricacies involved, make these timepieces highly sought after, along with their aesthetic value and investment value.

Below are examples of the type of clocks you will find in the Old As Time Antiques showcase. All items are covered by a six or twelve month support warranty.
