10 Antique Clock Graphics
Today we have a fun collection of black and white Clock Graphics for you. The vintage Alarm Clock clipart images are fun and interesting. They would work well in your steampunk projects. The lovely antique Case Clocks remind me of my Grandmother’s house and the timeless beauty of days gone by. This curated set of vintage images finishes with some very unusual timepieces that are fun and captivating. I thought these images might be fun to use in your New Year’s projects or card making activities, but of course you could use these for any time of the year as well! The whole collection could be used to create an amazing Junk Journal, ATC, or Mixed Media Collage project about time. Enjoy these antique clock pictures and have fun creating.
Black Alarm Clock Clipart
This is a cute little clock graphic with a black front on it, and some snazzy looking numbers! This one appears to be a Radile brand. Featured above is a fun Vintage Alarm Clock Clipart image with a Black Dial. It appears to have a “Slumber Stopped” feature, which sounds like a Snooze button to me! This one was scanned from an Antique Hardware Catalog.
Vintage Alarm Clock Clipart
The images in this section are fun vintage alarm clock graphics! Isn’t this one cute?! This fancy speciman comes from a 1911 Catalog! I love the ornate look of the numbers on the face and the fancy little decorative ring on the top. However, the design on the hour hand really draws my eye. It also has a shadow. It carries the name “The Tattoo Intermittent.” I wonder what that name means?
The next image is a steampunk alarm clock for sure and is meant to be a more compact and less fancy model of the first one above. It came from the same catalog and carries the name “The Junior Tattoo.” Cute!
Here’s another fun Vintage Alarm Clock Clipart that I love! This one has a more traditional look to it and a Classic shape! I always wanted an alarm clock with a big bell on top that has that little piece that actually taps the metal bell to make the sound.
Here is the newest addition to this collection. I think this little timepiece illustration is so interesting! It’s a diagram showing the inner workings of an alarm clock. So cool!
Antique Wooden Cased Clock Graphics
This is a fabulous Antique Clock graphic! This old fashioned picture shows a Clock in a very Fancy Wooden Case! The case is black with white with etched details surrounding the face and there is a lovely beaded handle on the top. This one was scanned from an old Printer’s book and probably dates to around the 1880’s -1890’s.
Here’s a wonderful antique graphic of a Fancy Old Victorian Clock that came out of an 1880’s Jewelers and Watch Catalog. I love the contrast of the white Scrolls and Swirls against the black! The Roman numeral face is surrounded by an embossed ring of the same scrolling. There appears to be marble insets on either side of the clock face that might be doors. This one
Unusual Antique Clock Clipart
This is an interesting looking old clock! This image comes from an 1850’s catalog. I love how ornate the lower part is! I wonder if the hanging and draping part is wood or metal?
This is such a fun antique clock graphic of Clocks from Around the World! This is from a circa 1880 book. These great looking little clocks, represent clocks from many countries from around the world. Some of the countries probably don’t exist any more or have changed names.
I hope you enjoyed this curated collection of Antique Clock Graphics and Alarm Clock Clipart. You might also like our Clock Face Image Collection HERE.

tattoo in the past also meant a bugle call played in british army (US too I believe). So its a wake up call
Karen Watson says
Thanks so much for the info Kirk. I had never heard that before!
Wow, these clocks are amazing and I love some of the intense detail on them.
Thank you so much for sharing these with us and have a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
Thanks so much Irene, I hope your Mother’s Day weekend was wonderful!

Super graphics as usual. I have to note that although the graphic with all the small city clocks has many time mistakes. Still a great graphic.
Patrice Hileman says
Hi, and thanks for the cool clock graphics! One of my grandfathers was a watchmaker so I especially love these. By the way, an alternate definition of “Tattoo” refers to a drumbeat or bugle call that signals the military to return to their quarters, so it makes sense for an alarm clock!
Oh that is awesome Patrice and thanks also for the fun fact!
Angela Hoynes says

Mary Beko says
Thanks for brightening my day!!!!! It’s always such joy to see what you have…..
Aww, thanks so much Mary, you are so sweet!
Thanks so much for your free graphics. I appreciate your generosity.
You are so welcome Bertrice, I am so happy you enjoy them!
The “Intermittent” clocks were made by the Newhaven Clock Company in the early 1900’s. The ‘intermittent’ refers to the action of the clock’s alarm. It would sound and then pause before sounding again, and so on.
Thank you for the images and an interesting site in its own right because of both the memories it provokes for some and the service it gives in preserving a record of the past.
Thank you so much for sharing this Roger. I didn’t know that and really appreciate you giving us that interesting tidbit 🙂 I am so glad you enjoy the images and completely agree with you!

Oh Karen, thank you for these fabulous images – the black one from the Jeweller and Watchmaker’s catalogue reminds me of the ‘mantlepiece’ clock that was in the house I grew up in It was not the exactly the same, but near enough to recall it – it kept reasonable time, from memory, but although it struck on the quarter hours, you could not rely on the strikes to tell the time, either from the quarter ( it was known to strike the hour on a quarter), and my Dad used to swear he heard it strike 13 times once!!
What a lovely memory, thank you so much for sharing it with us Maxine! Blessings 🙂
Betsy (BB) says

Betty Benton says
thank you! wonderful clock — mine just quit working — this is so lifelike I could probably just print it out and not have to go to the store for another one!
Thanks Graphic Fairy! check out my blog post showing student’s work using your images…
the cats, bats and crows seemed to be the most popular!
Just in time for setting back the clocks on Nov 6!
