The Howard Miller Benjamin Grandfather Clock evokes a timeless beauty. Crafted from select hardwoods and veneers, this elegant grandfather clock glows with a rich Windsor Cherry finish. The delicately curved pediment is crowned by a turned finial and decorative shell overlay. Beneath it, the polished brass-finished clock dial features elaborate corner spandrels, central disc with an astrological blue moon phase, and a silver chapter ring with applied brass Arabic numerals. The polished brass clock pendulum echoes the look of the dial with its own decorative center disc and weight shells. Reeded columns with turned top and bottom caps frame the door, and the elegantly sculpted base boasts a distinctive cutout design. Beveled glass gleams on the lower door while removable glass upper side panels allow easy access to the clocks movement. An illuminated case and mirrored back highlight the pendulum and weight shells. The Howard Miller Benjamin Grandfather Clock features a classic cable driven grandfather clock movement, a German made Kieninger movement that will keep time faithfully and plays the charming Westminster chime as heard from London's famous Big Ben clock. The Benjamin Grandfather Clock's movement includes a convenient nighttime chime silence option. The clock's door locks for added security, and adjustable floor levelers are located under all four corners to ensure the clock remains level on uneven surfaces or carpet. Also included with this Howard Miller grandfather clock is an exquisite brass heirloom plate which will be engraved by the Howard Miller Clock Company with your name and date - simply return the request card that will be enclosed with your clock. In addition you will also receive a brass Howard Miller Heirloom capsule with a certificate documenting your clock's history for future generations.
