Clock exhibition from the Museum collection 24 May 2010

The items from the collection of the former owners of the Gomel Palace - the Princely Paskeviches Family - are the basis for the clock collection of the Museum of the Gomel Palace & Park Ensemble. The interiors of the Palace used to be decorated by the grandfather clocks, the wall-mount clocks, the table timepieces as well as the chimneypieces of clocks and candelabra; those items would vary in their shape, technique and age. Those were unique pieces made not only by the skilful masters of the time art, but by the famous European bronze-makers, sculptors, furniture makers, enamellers who used to work in the 18th - 19th century.

The Museum collection has been enriched by new items with the lapse of time. Among them alongside with the fireplace and the table clocks one can see hunting watches and wristwatches, many types of the wall-mount clock-cabinets in timber cases, portable clocks and alarm clocks. Today the best examples from the Museum collection of clocks decorate the exposition called "The owners of the Gomel Estate: the Rumyantsevs and the Paskeviches" located in the Palace Tower and in the Red Sitting Room where one can see attempts of historical reconstruction of the Palace interiors of the late 19th - early 20th century.
