Hanging clock / mantel clock / table clock / long-case clock

Hanging clocks include models suspended by hooks but also those attached to a bracket. Mantel clocks include all spring-driven versions placed on furniture tops and mantelpieces. Table clocks have horizontal dials or several vertical dials on different sides, to be read from different angles. Long-case clocks (comprising pillar clocks, tower clocks, and see-though-case clocks) are those whose movement and dial are housed in a long case that rests on the floor and protects the pendulum and weights.
