A very special meticulously handcrafted clock with a pine needle handwoven frame and a copper metal clock face. The metal is decorated with heart-shaped and star-shaped piercings, and the Roman numerals are dimensional black plastic. The star of this piece is the handsome frame, intricately hand-woven in the age-old pine-needle weaving technique. Notice the lace-like elements at the top of the clock. There is a beautiful warm coloration to the natural pine needle material, which is complemented well by the copper tones.

The clock measures 11″ x 7″. There is a wood-burned signature on the oval wood panel on the back — I can make out the first name is “Bea” and the last name is a little less legible. There is a wood-burned date of 1987, which looks to be written over in ink as 1997. A quarts clock mechanism box is attached to the back. I have not tested it, and cannot say whether it is functional. There is a piece of tape placed over the little wheel on the device, and the box appears to be glued to the board (the alignment is somewhat askew). There is also a metal attachment for hanging.

The clock shows minimal/light signs of age or wear, and the weaving and copper face are in good condition. The pine needles look to have been treated with a light sealant for protection and longevity.
