There is no more impressive timepiece for the home than a grandfather clock. A true family heirloom.
The classic and traditional Grandfather clocks tells a story – of the passage of time both figuratively and literally. This style of clock is a memento of the past, and signifies the obsolete customs and etiquette of a bygone era. They are a reminder of the traditions and style of the distant past, making them unique masterpieces of time.
Beginning life known as the English long case clock, today’s Grandfather clocks are descended from this traditional style of clock that became popular in the civilised world in the late 17th and early 18th century. In the past, these timepieces were so expensive that only royalty and nobility could afford to have one in their houses.
However, with the invention of improved manufacturing techniques, production costs went down and Grandfather clocks became affordable for less well-to-do households. Grandfather clocks have remained popular since their invention, with demand for these heritage timepieces still strong today.
