Jacques de Selliers, an expert in majoliclockophilia, has joined the hobbyDB Advisory Board. (If you aren’t familiar with that term, it means “connoisseur of faience clocks”… Not familiar with “faience?” It refers to objects with a “fine tin-glazed pottery on a delicate pale buff earthenware body.”)
More specifically, he curates the Clockarium, a museum of Art Deco ceramic clocks in Brussels. There are over a thousand different mantel clocks from the first half of the 20th Century in the museum. He is also one of the main contributors to a 2008 Visitor’s Guide to the museum, printed in French and Dutch.
We look forward to seeing more of the museum’s collection on hobbyDB!
