A collection of antique timepieces will be on display at the Lynden Pioneer Museum through Sept. 15.
Lynden Pioneer Museum, which features historical exhibits from the early days of northern Whatcom County, will be showing items on loan from the West Coast Clock and Watch Museum in Bellingham - including several dozen timepieces from the mid-1700s to the late 1940s that were manufactured in both North America and Europe.
Highlights of the collection include rare early French enamel and art-glass pocket watch stands, whimsical animated and musical clocks, and unusual themed clock cases - from cast iron and bronze to colorful French, German and Dutch Delft (blue and white) porcelains. Also included are examples of 19th century woodcarvings and decorative Victorian-era tabletop and mantlepiece novelties.
Lynden Pioneer Museum is at 217 Front St., Lynden. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is $7 adults; $4 seniors and students; children 6 and younger are admitted free. There's an optional $4 tour fee.
