Tidepieces by Alan Winick - Stratford Point Lighthouse Tide Clock
- Exclusively available only from Mellow Monkey
- Handcrafted by local artisan, Alan Winick, this tide clock has the image of Stratford Point Lighthouse and the Long Island Sound tide that rises and falls as the actual tide in your location goes from high to low.
- Stratford Point Light is located in the Lordship coastal section of Stratford and was originally established in 1822.
- The original lighthouse and keeper's quarters were destroyed in a fire in 1881, and then replaced with a new 35-foot cast iron tower and eight room Gothic Revival house.
- The all white tower was later given the distinctive marking of a red band around its middle.
- The building adjacent to the tower was constructed in 1911 to house the two engines needed to operate the small air compressor for the newly installed siren fog horn.
- Several changes were made to the lighthouse optics over the years, with the current optic installed in 1990.
- Stratford Point Light continues to guide mariners past the shifting sand bars of the mouth of the Houstatonic River.
- 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 Long Island Sound rises and falls as the tide goes from high to low.
