The Howard Miller Akron Mantel Clock is a perfect finishing touch for even the most formal of spaces. Fitted from top to bottom with lavish details, it features a rich Windsor Cherry finish over select hardwoods and veneers, contrasted by pops of polished brass as seen in the handle and bezel border. Reeded columns frame the decorative dial, enhanced by an applied brass-tone, while an etched center disk and delicate ornamentation provide plenty of visual interest. Graceful fret panels and applied brass numerals complete the obvious elegance of this classic piece, sure to be treasured by your family for years. With a precise interior mechanism crafted of quartz, it plays either Westminster or Ave Maria chimes, and features both a volume control option and automatic nighttime chime shut-off.
