It’s quite likely that you’re familiar with the carriage clock — or at the very least, you’ve seen one. It was invented during the 19th century and as you can tell by its name was designed for keeping track of time while traveling (typically by carriage). Years later, as the car replaced the carriage, the carriage clock became a fixture on many fireplace mantels or desktops in homes. My grandparents had one in their living room, and I can remember watching my grandmother wind the clock every so often so it would continue to tick. In keeping with the evolution of design and function, Cédric Ragot of  designedbyitem for Innermost gives us a definite modern interpretation of the centuries old timepiece — the mantel dome. I like it very much.
