The Howard Miller Veronica Grandfather Clock boasts a host of elegant details reminiscent of Victorian-style clock making and design. An ornate pediment with book-matched rare olive ash veneer has been crowned with a carved shell and leaf motif and two turned urn finials. This elegant grandfather clock has been crafted using select hardwoods and veneers and then finished in exquisite satin Windsor Cherry. The polished brass clock dial features a crystal cut glass central disc with polished brass, cast corner spandrels. The circular spun-silver colored chapter ring has applied brass Arabic numerals. The striking blue moon dial includes backlit pierced stars, and the polished brass lyre clock pendulum has a crystal cut glass center disc that complements the dial. The case with mirrored back is illuminated by not one but two lamps; one is located in the top, while the other can be found in the base, where it lights the pendulum and polished brass weight shells. Frosted glass located in the base lends the light a soft, welcoming glow. The bottom door and glass have a distinctive serpentine shape, and the beveled top and side glass panels are removable, allowing convenient access to the movement. Sculpted columns feature upper and lower carvings with unique botanical patterns. The shapely, multi-tiered base features corner carvings that frame the book-matched veneer and shell and leaf overlay.
