A close-up image of an ornate grandfather clock face is shown here. Grandfather clocks can be made of brass, wood, silver, metal, and various other materials. As the hands click into place, a bell, chime, or other tone indicates the hour.
Grandfather clocks not only keep time, they serve as beautiful and elegant pieces of furniture. A grandfather clock typically stands about 7 feet high and has a pendulum and weights beneath the clock.
