Close Up's from the Bily Clock Museum








more from the Bily Clock Museum, did you miss my first blog post "see here". Just look that that work, can you believe that is real, it is just mind numbing to me. 2nd picture is my fave of all these clocks, i love transportation and found it really cool all those details. 3rd picture is the clock Henry Ford want to pay 1 million dollars (this would have been in the 30's, depression era ... amazing that folks even had a million dollars way back then) to have in his museum. & did u know the Smithsonian Museum has asked to have these clocks in their museum, but the Bily Bros. always wanted their works of art to stay in Spillville, Iowa. I sure hope folks will go there to see them, so amazing. Some parts move, dance, sing, have music. We had a camping friend named "Iowa Dave" and he recommended us to go. So fun!! I really enjoyed it. Have a great day. Thank you for stopping by. Take Care, Beth ( ;

I would love to know how long it took to make each one....and I wonder if just one person worked on them?

They are amazing, I agree.
Too many, now, have too many millions, while we cannot even give a working hourly wage for good, honest workers. It is awful.
