2014 NAWCC Ward Francillon Time Symposium
Host: Chapter 60 Florida Gold Coast
Hotel: Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Convention: Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Chair: Joe Cohen
The history, clock types and styles, inventions, and major improvements during the following French periods will be covered. Clock types and styles followed furniture styles. Important clockmakers, movement makers, casemakers, founders, bronzers, dial makers, gilders, ébénistes, and other associated disciplines will be discussed. As a bonus, a new searchable Excel database of almost 1,000 artisans in the aforementioned disciplines will be given to attendees.
If you are a member of the NAWCC, a researcher, an appraiser, an auctioneer, an antique dealer, an art historian, or a museum professional, this symposium offers you a unique opportunity to gain in-depth insight into the history and details of the French clock industry. In addition to the maker database, attendees will receive a compilation of the information presented by each
speaker. An outstanding exhibit of French clock types and styles from each period will enhance this fascinating topic.
