“Antique” Grandfather Clocks

05.17.08

The antique lovers among us go to great lengths to find those perfect pieces that will fit seamlessly into our home; the pieces for which there is a story, on which wear and tear symbolize character, and which reflect the pride of handcraftsmanship that is often missing in today’s products. For antique hunters, there is always another shop to visit, flea market to prowl, and estate sale to attend; all in the effort to create a home that lovingly displays these cherished pieces.

Of course, not every piece needs to be genuinely antique in order to work in the home. Grandfather clocks, which are wonderful pieces that are passed down from generation to generation, may be found in antique stores and estate sales, but very often they are kept within families and difficult to find. Additionally, some consumers would rather not take on the responsibility of maintaining an antique grandfather clock.

Instead, there is the option to purchase newly manufactured grandfather clocks from reputable clock suppliers that offer antique inspired designs. Through such suppliers, consumers will be able to find grandfather clocks that fit the bill in terms of style and fit easily into the home amidst antique pieces.

Modern grandfather clock manufacturers such as Howard Miller clocks and Kieninger clocks offer beautifully crafted clocks that have the elegance and sophistication of antiques in the body of a modern clock.

Better still, homeowners will have grandfather clocks that will last a lifetime and that can be passed onto their own family someday.
