Grandfather Clocks Information

A grandfather clock is a tall, freestanding clock, often made of wood and utilizing a weight-driven pendulum. Many grandfather clocks are elaborately carved around the face, and feature a distinct chiming sequence; chiming once at the top of the hour followed by the hour strike, and also chiming on the quarter hour. Well-loved by decorators and antique collectors, the grandfather clock was originally developed in 1670 by English clockmaker William Clement.
