Jerusalem Clock with Hebrew Digits by Armenian Ceramics
Diameter: 8.7" / 22 cm
This ceramic wall clock will be sure to draw attention wherever you choose to hang it! The clock face surrounds a colorful Old Jerusalem scene above the word "Jerusalem" in English. Around the edge of the plate is a classical Armenian blue and white pattern.
The unique quality this clock features is its Hebrew alpha-numeric digits for 1 through 12 that represent the time instead of Arabic numbers or Roman digits. This gives the clock an especially authentic Old World look.
Each individual item is hand made with ceramic clay. Once complete it is placed in an oven at temp. 1000 C until hardened. Each piece is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color.
Again it is returned to the oven at the same temperature and finished with fine glazing.
