Catch of the Day

Your schedule may be packed full as a can of sardines, but this uncanny clock can still help you smile about it. Crafted by artisans in Colombia using recycled metal, its face takes the classic shape of an opened sardine can with a single tail-flipping fish to mark out the seconds. The "rusty" patina and colorful details are applied by hand. It's a perfect clock for cooks, cat lovers, or anyone with a sense of humor. Made in Colombia.

      I was looking for a clock for my kitchen but it had to have personality and this clock is perfect. It is amusing--it makes me giggle every time I look at it; it is very artistic and ingenious and it is perfect for the kitchen. And, to top it off, it keeps great time!

            All I can comment on is ...
            It looks marvy in our kitchen and I like the fact that it was recycled and that some one put their thought in the unique design....
            I will be a continuing shopper....

              This is a fun piece that is also useful. It makes us smile when we look at it & feels like a "breath of fresh air" in an otherwise formal kitchen.

              Service and delivery comments:

              It arrived with a packaging issue which the company corrected in (literally) a couple of minutes. Love the clock AND the company!

                Comments about SARDINE WALL CLOCK:

                Such a cute "punchline" piece, but the joke was on us. Very poorly made, inaccurate timekeeping, and hard to read unless it is eye level--Not great attributes for a clock. Disappointing at best but not worth the trouble to pack it up and ship it back. We will keep our eyes open for a replacement clock real soon. Wish I would have reordered the record clock which we loved but after several years, had finally broken. Decided to try a different clock. Mistake. This was made in Colombia--perhaps the Colombian artist was high on Colombian!

                  This is a birthday gift, and the recipient will receive it Saturday night! I purchased it because of a long-standing joke about sardines when she was a little girl--as she celebrates her 73rd birthday, she'll know WHY she received it as soon as she opens the box!! Bobbi

                    Cute but not overly original. I've seen similar to this at several craft shows in the past years

                    I actually purchased this from At West End and it's terrible quality. I adore it because it's so stinkin' cute but it's fallen apart. It doesn't have much in the way of affixing to the wall and once it falls, forget about it. The fish no longer swings. I have it sitting on my mantle but I'd never buy another one.

                    It makes no sense. I collect original and unique clocks, but i just don't get the point of this.

                    I'm not sure I would purchase this myself. I don't know anyone who would absolutely LOVE this as a gift but it is a cute idea.

                    My grandpa was a sardine eater. This rusty-lookin' can would have been a perfect gift for him! It's so cute, I'd be tempted to buy it in remembrance of him.

                    Would be even better if mechanically the can top opened to the clock ticking.
