A time clock, sometimes known as a clock card machine or punch clock is a mechanical timepiece used to assist in tracking the hours worked by an employee. Our time clock is merely for show.

Hibernia is the Classical Latin name for the island of Ireland. As seen in the map above -- which is on display in the upstairs salon -- Ireland is referred to as Hibernia.

Long before online dating and Tinder, people went on dates where their legs did not touch. The love seat shown was built so that doting daters could sit and chat but prevented them from engaging in any ankle aerobics.  


Some love seats would have continued round into a third seat with a chaperon sitting in the middle.

A sundial tells the time of day by the position of the Sun in the sky. In the narrowest sense of the word it consists of a flat plate (the dial) and a gnomon which casts a shadow onto the dial. As the sun moves across the sky, the shadow aligns with different hour-lines which are marked on the dial to indicate the time of day.


The style must be parallel to the axis of the Earth's rotation for the sundial to be accurate throughout the year. Unfortunately our sundial is not aligned however it sits in our garden and occasionally birds sit on it to sun.
