Irish Bog Oak Clock

About

Do you want to own something that is 500 years old??? Presenting a Classic piece of Irish Bog Oak, crafted into a Clock. Modern quartz clock insert in perfect working condition. Made in the last 20 years, but the bog oak from which it is made, is over 5000 years old !!!!! The center of Ireland is covered in peat bogs, prehistoric lakes that over the millennia became filled with plant matter,.thus creating peat (or turf). These bogs have miraculous preservative powers, keeping deposits of prehistoric tree branches in almost pristine condition. Bodies have been discovered by Archaeologist’s in these bogs still so intact, that even after 3000 years that the skin is still supple !!! Bog Wood: Bog-wood, also known as abonos and morta, especially amongst pipesmokers, is a material from trees that have been buried in peat bogs and preserved from decay by the acidic and anaerobic bog conditions, sometimes for hundreds or even thousands of years. The wood is usually stained brown by tannins dissolved in the acidic water. Bog-wood represents the early stages in the fossilisation of wood, with further stages ultimately forming lignite and coal over a period of many millions of years. Bog-wood may come from any tree species naturally growing near or in bogs, including oak (Quercus – "bog oak"), pine (Pinus), yew (Taxus), swamp cypress (Taxodium) and kauri (Agathis). Bog-wood is often removed from fields etc. and placed in clearance cairns. It is a rare form of timber that is "comparable to some of the world's most expensive tropical hardwoods".
