Ancient Clock Shoppe - Country Clocks

I took a beautiful motorcycle ride up the Hudson River on Sunday and came across this lovely shop.  The village of Cold Spring sits across the river in New York from the military academy of West Point.  The village itself is a treasure trove of independent antique shops.
Country Clocks is a treasure trove of gorgeous clocks, perfect for anyone's high end steampunk decor.  Proprietor Howard restores the beautiful pieces himself, and has great passion for his collections.  He explained that many of the pieces were sourced locally. A lot of the pieces were made in France, England, other European countries where wealthy immigrants of the 18th and 19th century came from.  The pieces were then passed down through generations and eventually were acquired by the shop.
