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!
