Comments about RECLAIMED SLATE CLOCK:

The Slate Clock that arrived was smaller than I would like it to be. The hands of the clock came bent and deformed. The clock parts feel flimsy and the clock was nonfunctional. I like the look and it feels sturdy, but as a clock (which it is listed as) it is probably the worst clock I have ever seen. As a miniature chalkboard it is a cool little gift.

    I have this in my kitchen/dining area. We welcome visiters with a message on it and we use it for personal notes as well. It is a conversatin piece and tells us the time as well.

      Comments about RECLAIMED SLATE CLOCK:

      I thought this was a great wedding present for young teacher's starting their lives off together and in the classroom at the chalk board. Just seemed kitschy and fun.

        This slate clock will be a retirement gift for a husband and wife, retiring after a combined teaching service of over 80 years!! What could be a more significant gift than this reclaimed slate clock from an elementary school in Quincy, Illinois!! The clock, with eraser and chalk, will grace their entry hall as a constant and timely reminder of their wonderful years in education.
