Hi my name is Marc, I was born and have lived in Beautiful Brisbane, Qld Australia all my life. I first started collecting clocks about 10 years ago and i was a sellHi my name is Marc, I was born and have lived in Beautiful Brisbane, Qld Australia all my life. I first started collecting clocks about 10 years ago and i was a sellers Dream come true. I bought any and everything junk, fake, reproduction clocks I was the worst collector.
I am happy to say after now collecting a total of about 900 clocks I have become much better at selecting quality and infact "REAL ANTIQUE" clocks. My obsession began when I found a Ballerina Clock on Ebay and thought to myself, "Oh my gawd", that's the same clock my Irish Grandmother had on her sideboard that I broke and it took ages for her to forgive me. "sheesh I was only 8 years old. Anyway after that the clock bug kicked in. I am happy to say I have refined further collecting down to JUST Jema Holland Clocks now. Once I purchased my first Jema Clock being the Black Panther I was in love. The maker as I have learned is not well known and sadly has vanished without a trace as far as history and true ledgers of how many Jema Holland Clocks were really made. For now Jema collectors like me are just guessing on random information we share between us that we have found in some sites. I have now actually communicated with the daughter of the maker who sadly had very little information to date to share with me. It is believed there is at least 80 different Jema clocks that were made but that hasn'r been 100% confirmed. I have now about 120 Jema Holland Clocks of which i have about 56 different ones. I have photos of 10 I am yet to find "sad face".... which means there is at least 14 more different Jema Clocks out that that are "Unknown" re their number or what they are.. IE: Budgies, Cats and so on. My dream one day sooner rather than later is to somehow miraculously come across the lost Jema's and proudly say I believe I now have a complete Jema Holland Clock Collection. It excites me that I like others are so passionate out these clocks and that we do it to hopefully leave for future generations what beautiful work was done by Jema back in the 1940's. Thanks for reading my blog. Feel free to ask as many questions as you want. Also
feel free to give me a heart attack with news of finding a Jema Clock out their in the vast universe. Cheers Marc firstname.lastname@example.org (Read more)
