Grandfather Clocks Contest – Best Antique and New-Vintage Grandfather Clock

Grandfather Clocks Blog is Pleased to Announce the 2007 Grandfather Clocks Contest brought to you by 1-800-4CLOCKS.

Many people have a favorite among the many grandfather clocks they have seen or may themselves own. The reasons can be many, from antique grandfather clocks with mercury pendulums, astronomical dials, amazing casework and carving, the chimes or even built in music box or automata – whether made by Britian’s J.J. Elliott , Tiffany and Company, Walter Durfee, Winterhalder & Hoffmeier, Seth Thomas Clocks, or one of the new makers like Howard Miller Clocks, Hermle Clocks, the Ridgeway Clock Collection, Kieninger Clocks or the thousands of other makers of antique grandfather clocks or new grandfather clocks. Home-made grandfather clocks and those built from grandfather clock kits are also welcome.

The 1-800-4CLOCKS 2007 Grandfather Clocks Contest is open to everyone, and will offer two grand prizes of $250 gift certificates good for 1 year at 1-800-4CLOCKS. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE POSTMARKED BY DECEMBER 31, 2007. No purchase is required, and each individual may submit one entry only (for each Category). Your ORIGINAL photo(s) AND description (the more detailed the better) must be included with your entry. You do not need to be the owner of the clock you submit, but potential copyright issues may prevent posting more than a description if there are any copyright issues regarding the photo or description. The winners will likely be featured, along with their clocks if desired and as possible, on the website.

There are 2 Categories – one for each $250 grand prize (Gift Certificate at 1-800-4CLOCKS):

1 for Best and Most Interesting Antique Grandfather Clock, and

1 for Best and Most Interesting New or Vintage Grandfather Clock.
