The Worn Black wood and metal accents of the Howard Miller 645-653 Bishop Mantel Clock make it look like the kind of antique store find that you remember forever. In reality, it's a modern mantel clock with an alarm and a battery-operated quartz movement. The aged off-white dial displays worn black Arabic numerals in an old-fashioned font. The red undertones of the wood finish also give the clock an old-fashioned look. The clock is made of select materials, including hardwoods and veneers. You'll probably still want to go antiquing, but you no longer have to keep your eyes peeled for a clock. You'll have one fine heirloom clock right at home, with no worries about its ability to keep up with modern times.
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.
