THE TEL DAN STELA furnished the first historical evidence of King David from the Bible. The ninth-century B.C. stela’s fragmented inscription proved that King David was a genuine historical figure.

Grandfather clocks are one of my unshakeable design craves. This King David (moon phase) grandfather clock, circa 1815, reminds me of sitting at the feet of my Great Grandfather, waiting for his own to chime. Gorgeous piece. Thanks to Karen Chuba for helping me discover it and reconnect with a memory I love. -- Eve.
