The simple yet elegant Howard Miller Avalon Grandfather Clock is a modern design supported by a sleek platform base. Its clean lines and warm espresso finish enhance the durable, long-lasting select hardwood and veneer construction. The illuminated case houses a gloss-white dial with black markers and hands, plus a polished chrome bezel. Also in chrome are the decorative weight shells and the extra-long pendulum, which matches the linear appeal of the frame itself. For sound, quartz, triple-chime harmonic movement plays your choice of Westminster or Ave Maria chimes at every quarter, half, and three-quarter hour, plus a full chime and strike at the hour. Volume control and automatic nighttime chime shutoff options are integrated.
The Howard Miller Story
Incomparable workmanship, unsurpassed quality, and a quest for perfection - these were the cornerstones of the company Howard C. Miller founded in 1926, at the age of 21. Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value.
Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromised through three generations.
A highly respected brand, Howard Miller maintains its popularity because of the company's commitment to quality. Every product manufactured at the company's sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan, undergoes stringent tests and exceeds industry standards to ensure a lifetime of enjoyment.
