The 88th anniversary edition Howard Miller Alford Grandfather Clock features hardwood and veneer construction in a lightly distressed Hampton cherry finish for a timeworn appeal. Its beveled glass door features book-matched olive ash burl overlays with a fluted keystone flanked by fluted columns. The overlay continues on to the multi-tiered base with carved ornamentation, proving the frame is just as elaborate and breathtaking as the shimmering mechanisms within the case itself. The clock showcases a remarkable open dial with polished brass roman numerals and black hands. The polished brass weight shells come banded in decorative accents, and the pendulum boasts a cast center disk that’s wonderfully intricate. Cable-driven Kieninger movement plays quarter, half, and three-quarter chimes, plus a full chime and strike on every hour. Automatic nighttime shut-off and chime silence options are integrated.
