Grandfather Clock Artwork

03.26.08

The beauty of a grandfather clock can be – and often is – handed down through the generations, as much for its size as its overall design. Consumers can tell the time through the use of any kind of clocks – certainly smaller clocks such as wall clocks and mantel clocks – so why do they choose grandfather clocks? What makes grandfather clocks still so popular?

The answer is simple. Grandfather clocks are more than just a way to tell the time. They are pieces of furniture – furniture that can complement the design of a room and create a focal point around which family and friends can gather. A grandfather clock in a dining room can create a family atmosphere; a grandfather clock in a living room can elevate the design of a room to a more sophisticated level; and a grandfather clock in a family room can pull together the overall design of a room and finish it off appropriately. And part of the way that a grandfather clock can accomplish this is through its unique designs – as evidenced by the artwork.

Under the hood of a grandfather clock is the clock face where the numbers and hands of a clock indicate the time of day. But also included there in many cases is unique artwork that can denote a time period in history, a whimsical tale, or simple and sophisticated shapes and scrolls.

The artwork found on the face of a grandfather clock does as much to determine the overall style of a clock than anything else. For consumers choosing between grandfather clocks, the existence of artwork as well as the materials used and the lines of the clock will go a long way towards helping making a decision – especially when the clock is in mind for a particular room with a particular design.
