The Howard Miller J.H. Miller II Limited Edition Grandfather Clock is an object of art to be cherished and handed down from generation to generation. Designed by Chris Bergelin, it is finished in warm Windsor Cherry and crafted from 16 different species of hardwoods and veneers, including cherry, crotch-figured mahogany, Russian walnut burl, movingue, maple, ebony, padauk, silver gum, black cherry, magnolia, beech, avodire, anegre, pearwood, English sycamore, and boxwood. Some of these species are very rare.
This elegant limited-edition clock boasts a Kieninger cable-driven, triple-melody, nine-tubular-chime movement and features 36 bushings (24 bronze and 12 jeweled) and an automatic nighttime chime shut-off option. The beautiful swan-neck pediment is crowned with three carved finials, two carved rosettes, and a carved finial shell at the center. The pediment also sports book-matched Russian walnut burl and floral inlays framed with a movingue border with ebony and maple accent lines.
The ornate, polished-brass Roman numeral dial features custom cast corners, center, and moon arch ornaments unique to this clock. The cast center disk is numbered and features a removable engraving plate for personal inscriptions. 'Limited Edition' is inscribed across the hemispheres. The dial also includes a special brass-finished moon phase. The decorative polished-brass lyre pendulum features a cast center disk with a spun silver background. Complementing polished-brass-finished weight shells are embellished with decorative bands with a silver-tone background.
The grand bombe-style base displays carved moldings with a decorative cut-out framed with carved floral motifs. Beveled glass on the front and sides add to its classic charm. Top side doors allow access to the movement and storage of the hand crank and key. The impressive upper and lower columns feature large reeds with carved acanthus accent moldings between and intricately carved acanthus top and bottom column caps. A delicate carved molding graces the panel between the upper and lower doors. The upper and lower doors feature crotch-figured mahogany with complementing marquetry of maple, ebony, padauk, and pearwood.
Adjustable levelers under each corner of this clock ensure stability on uneven and carpeted floors, while the door locks for added security.
