When I was younger, I would frequently spend up to a week at a time alone with my grandparents. If I woke in the middle of the night, I would be soothed by the gentle ticking of the pendulum of their grandfather clock. I loved listening to the chimes every quarter hour, and always knowing the time.
As my kids have gotten older, I have started looking for furniture that is longer lasting – now that they aren’t damaging everything immediately! I’ve been interested in reading about the characteristics of a grandfather clock, and starting to research new grandfather clocks.
My grandparents’ grandfather clock was cool, but it had a lot of quirks. I’m looking for an old-fashioned looking, but quirk-free new grandfather clock. My favorite is the Howard Miller Nottingham grandfather clock: it’s reasonably priced, has a gorgeous wooden case, a lovely chime, and I love the way the top pieces curl towards each other. I’d love to have my children have wonderful memories of grandfather clocks as well!
