Tidepieces by Alan Winick - Nubble Light / Cape Neddick Maine - Tide Clock
- Handcrafted by local artisan, Alan Winick, this tide clock has the image of Nubble Light at Cape Neddick in York Maine and the Atlantic Ocean tide that rises and falls as the actual tide in your location goes from high to low.
- The Cape Neddick Light is a lighthouse in Cape Neddick, York, Maine.
- In 1874 Congress appropriated $15,000 to build a light station at the "Nubble" and in 1879 construction began.
- Cape Neddick Light Station was dedicated by the U.S. Lighthouse Service and put into use in 1879. It is still in use today.
- Plans had been in the works to build a lighthouse on the site since 1837.
- The tower is lined with brick and sheathed with cast iron. It stands 41 feet (12 m) tall but the light is 88 feet (27 m) above sea level because of the additional height of the steep rocky islet on which it sits.
- Unusually, the stanchions of the walkway railing around the lantern room are decorated with 4-inch (100 mm) brass replicas of the lighthouse itself.
- Tide clock has a blue wood frame with dual faced clock.
- Bottom of clock provides the traditional tide clock showing current tide. Dial provides hours to high tide and to low tide.
- Top of clock is what makes this time piece truly unique. A mechanically animated display of the waterline of the Atlantic Ocean rises and falls as the tide goes from high to low.
