During the second half on the 19th Century, a silver clock for the desk or mantelpiece became a very popular household item in Britain, however silver clocks have actually been made in the UK since the reign of Charles I when the Clockmakers Company was established. During the 20th Century enamelled Art Deco, and stylish Arts & Crafts designs were produced, and are very sought after. Pocket watch holders were also very popular in the late Victorian period, allowing the pocket watch to be used as both a fashionable accessory and as a household item.
