Grand Mother Clocks

11.06.11

We at 1-800-4CLOCKS were more than a little surprised to learn that many people who are looking for grandmother clocks instead search for grand mother clocks.  It’s not a clocks or clock distinction that would normally come up in a retail environment or during the many years we have also dome catalog sales through our toll-free number at 1-800-4CLOCKS, which is 1-800-425-6257.

Do people also ask implicitly for Grand Father clocks when they are searching for grandfather clocks.  It would be interesting to know.  Perhaps if they are performing a search on one of the leading search engines, they might type in Howard Miller Grand Father Clock or Howard Miller Grand Mother Clock.  Until today, this thought had never even occurred to us.  Maybe we should be introducing our newest introduction of Museum Clocks™ Grandfather Clocks and Grandmother Clocks as Museum Clocks™ Grand Mother Clocks and Museum Clocks™ Grand Father Clocks ?

Should we be listing Hermle Grandfather Clocks as Hermle grand father clocks, as the Ridgeway Grandfather Clock collection instead as the Ridgeway Grand Father Clock collection?

Just how common is this what we will term alternate spelling of grandmother clocks and grandfather clocks?  We would appreciate the readers of this Grandfather Clocks Blog, or perhaps we should also call it the Grand Father Clocks Blog, to offer genuine feedback regarding this clock terminology point.

Perhaps there is some entomological source or horological source to support this alternate spelling.  Just when you thing you might know most all there is to reasonably know about the grandfather clock market and the grandmother clock market, you learn that there may also be in fact a grand mother clocks market and a grandfather clocks marketplace.  Live and learn.
