Father Time

Dad has given us so much of his time over the years, so for Father’s Day, why not give some time back to him? We think that this desk clock from the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the perfect way to capture time and share it with dear ol' pop. It’s adapted from a 1905 art glass window by Frank Lloyd Wright, which was created for the living room of the W.A. Glassner House in Glencoe, Illinois. The $65 clock is constructed from a mineral glass panel and a solid wood base with a light cherry stain. (Measures 6 1/4" in height, 6 1/4" in width, and 2" in depth.) Available at the Metropolitan Museum of Art bookstores (800-662-3397) or online (www.metmuseum.org/store). Watch as tempus fugit with this gift!
