Grandfather Clocks Relevance in Modern Times
|Posted December 6, 2008|
When working at your Toshiba laptop, or using your Apple iPhone, one might legitimately wonder just why would I need a grandfather clock in my home to tell time.
The short answer, which has been true since the advent of the wristwatch in the early 1900s, is that grandfather clocks are a form of, depending upon one's perspective, art, tradition, or high quality home furnishings. For this reason, grandfather clocks, also known as Floor Clocks and tallcase clocks, are here to stay!
They will continue to complement the homes and offices of today and the future as works of art, a means of carrying on a company or family tradition, or as ways of furnishing homes and offices around the world.
New forms of grandfather clocks will no doubt continue to be introduced, utilizing the latest in technology, such as atomic time and light projection and solar energy. Some interesting examples of the ways new thinking and new technologies can help new design to emerge is the reasonably recent introduction of the Howard Miller Oasis Waterfall Grandfather Clock. Who would have ever imagined a grandfather clock with a built-in waterfall? Howard Miller Oasis Waterfall Grandfather Clock Model 615-062.
Another trend we are seeing is the introduction of dirt-cheap grandfather clocks, most all likely made in the Far East, which are likely to leave many grandfather clocks discount shoppers mightily disappointed with their purchases. From those we have seen, not only is using the word wood many times a stretch, but assembly may be required, and the end result will be a featherweight clock with an at best mediocre movement.
Who was it who said Caveat Emptor, Baby?
