IT’S LUNCH TIME! TIMELY BEAUTY



COLUMBIA, PA: Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch “Time” presentation, “Reverse Painting on Glass” on Wednesday, February 14.


Lee Davis, a 50-year member of the NAWCC, will discuss how circa 1820–60 clock tablets were reverse painted with gold leaf borders, stenciled designs, and transfers. If time permits, Davis will actually demonstrate gold leafing on glass.



Davis was a guest instructor at the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors’ former School of Horology and is a retired public school teacher and graduate of Illinois State University with a master’s degree in education. He has been painting clock tablets since 1967 and has an extensive library of clock tablet designs.



The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and understanding of the artistry involved in clock designs. “We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection, or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit,” explains Poirier.

Lunch “Time” is a complimentary educational program held from noon to 1 p.m. and will continue every other month. The next program is scheduled for April 11.
