Many grandfather clocks shoppers are not aware that the famous Herman Miller was actually the father of the famous Howard Miller of Howard Miller Clock company fame. When Howard Miller started working at the Herman Miller Furniture Company, he soon found himself drawn and gravitating to clocks of all types.

We have in our collection and will soon show for sale an amazing antique Herman Miller Clock Barometer Thermometer mantle clock combination. We also have both electric and keywind and battery driven banjo clocks, mantel clocks, and wall clocks.
