The exquisite Howard Miller Neilson Grandfather Clock evokes classic elegance. Crafted from select hardwoods and veneers, this clock has a lovely, distressed Rustic Cherry finish for an appealing aged look. The graceful bonnet pediment of this floor clock features a dramatic carved shell framed by stepped swan neck pediment moldings. The soft curves of the pediment are repeated in the mid door rail, which also features a shell and vine overlay. Reeded columns feature heavily detailed acanthus leaf top and bottom caps, while a bombe base design features a decorative cut-out. The brushed nickel clock dial features corner and center ornaments and a moon arch with an astrological blue moon phase. The Neilson Grandfather Clock dial includes a silver chapter ring with applied satin black finished Arabic numerals. The matching brushed nickel finished pendulum features a center disk to complement the dial. Brushed nickel finished weight shells include bands which coordinate with the dial and pendulum. Beveled glass is featured in the lower door and sides. Removable fret-cut top side panels with glass allow for easy access to the movement. The Howard Miller Neilson 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 Neilson Grandfather Clock's movement includes a convenient automatic 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.
