Few of my favorite things: Sir John A MacDonald’s clock

In the study at Dalnavert Museum there is a clock on the mantle.

Dalnavert was built by Hugh MacDonald, the only surviving son of Sir John A MacDonald, first Prime Minister of Canada.

There only a few pieces in the museum that belonged to the family (most of the original items in the house were auctioned off after Hugh died and his wife sold and moved out).  The clock on the mantle is a MacDonald family heirloom.

It was once in Hugh’s father’s office.  I’ve been up close to an item owned by the first Prime Minister of Canada.  So cool!
