The Howard Miller Langston Grandfather Clock will lend a stately appeal to any room. Crafted from select hardwoods and veneers, the Langston Grandfather Clock has a warm and inviting Windsor Cherry finish. The graceful split pediment features a turned finial and a book-matched rare olive ash burl overlay with a decorative shell overlay in the center. Beneath it, the polished brass finished dial boasts elaborate corner spandrels, central disc, and a silver chapter ring with applied brass Arabic numerals. A lamp behind the clock's dial illuminates the pierced astrological blue moon phase, resulting in a delightful twinkling star effect. Beneath are polished brass weight shells and clock pendulum with a center disc that recalls the dial. Reeded columns with turned top and bottom caps flank the door. The sculpted grandfather clock base features a distinctive, decorative cutout, with book-matched olive ash burl overlays in the corners of the lower door panel. Crystal V-grooved glass and removable upper glass side panels enable easy access to the movement. The Howard Miller Langston 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 Langston Grandfather Clock's movement includes a convenient automatic 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.
