Who Created The Grandfather Clock?

Online Shopping
Are you looking for a fashionable clock? Discover the types of grandfather clocks that you can choose. They have historical appeal. Use a clock for appearance and sound. Do you know what clock styles your want? Read this article to learn about grandfathers.

Grandfather clocks have a clock face, with pendulum and weights enclosed in a thin, tall and freestanding wooden case. They evolved from wall clocks when the astronomers in the 1500s needed more accurate clocks. So, the astronomers made the pendulums longer.

Years later, the grandfather clock became less specialized. And modern manufacturers encased them in elongated cases so they could stand on the floor, hence, they are also known as floor clocks.

The improvements made in these antique clocks did not stop after its creation, that, in our time, the refined models are the latest versions. Among the modern manufacturers of grandfather clocks is Howard Miller.

Its limited edition of President Kennedy continues to grace many households and high-end corporate offices. Its authenticity is proved by each clock certified with a number, which is seen on its face. Its design is influenced by Roman architectural and makes an excellent family heirloom.

Another creation of Howard Miller is Satinwood. It has a simple, yet contemporary shape with delicate nickel accents and a curved glass top so you can view the movement of the pendulum. Its nickel accents are also seen on its dial with its nickel-finished bezel, markers and hands.

Hentschel is also a famous manufacturer of antique clocks. Its Chinook grandfather clock has arched split pediment with turned finial. It has automatic night shut-off and triple chime cable wound movement. The dial is moon-phased and with raised numbers on time ring and lunar arch.

Hentschel’s Thornbury clock has stunning scalloped beveled 3-piece glass. One of its distinct features is the floating dial with Roman numerals in raised brass. Its chime options include Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington. And it features auto night shut off on its triple-chime cable wound movement.

Brookfield floor clock by Sligh is among the retired clock by its manufacturers. But even when it is retired, it’s still famous with its applied Arabic numerals and midnight blue moon disc. It features three-piece reeded front columns that include decorative turned top and bottom column caps.

Shelbourne grandfather clock by Bulova is very famous. Its exquisite bomb-shaped four-tiered base design includes hand-carved feet and center ornamentation. It also has applied Arabic numerals and midnight blue moon disc.

Colchester, another Bulova grandfather clocks masterpiece has rare antique finish, creative V-grooves border design on front door glass, and bird’s eye maple veneers. It also has fluted and beaded pilasters.

Hallmark, still by Bulova, is accentuated by its meticulously carved base molding. Its moon dial, plated with brass, follows the rhythms of a brass-finished pendulum and weight shells.

Bulova also designed grandfather clocks for Harley Davidson. Among its features are black dials with raised satin silver-finish roman numerals. The numerals are brushed silver bar and shield logo, and satin silver-finish bezel.

Harley Davidson’s 8-day cable movement clock is self-adjustable. Each night, from 10:00 to 7:00 in the morning, its triple-chime cable movement stops by itself. You can choose from three different chimes.

Bulova’s Parliament grandfather clock has 16 Hammer, cable-mold triple chime and large diameter Corinthian fluted front columns. It has three-tiered “breakdown” lower base and beveled glass front door.
