The Grandfather of all clocks!

August 19th, 2010

English clockmaker, William Clement, is credited with the development of the Longcase, or Grandfather, clock.  These were tall, free-standing, weight-driven pendulum clocks with their long pendulums encased in beautiful wooden towers – they were, and still are, the perfect clock to add elegance and grandeur to any room, especially on a miniature scale!

Operated by battery, this working Grandfather clock from The Dolls House Emporium is classically-styled in mahogany and has a stunning decorative face with ornate carving.  Standing at 175mm high and 59mm wide, this eye catching grandfather clock would grace any grand reception or dining room.  So if you’re looking for both a sense of splendour and realism, this is the perfect accessory for you.
