George Vanderbilt wanted Biltmore House to be a working, self-sufficient endeavor. Today vineyards trace the rolling hills on this 8,000-acre estate and annually produce award-winning wines. In the tradition of these fine wines, the Ridgeway Vineyard Grandfather Clock is carefully hand crafted in a gracefully flowing leaf and vine motif with an aged silver finish. Store your favorite assortment of wines in the functioning wine rack, which is designed to accommodate nine bottles along with up to four wineglasses. The timepiece, suspended between the aged silver metalwork, features a cast stone dial and Royale Cherry housing. The Ridgeway Vineyard Grandfather Clock features a convenient quartz clock movement; a quartz movement will keep time faithfully and give you all the benefits of a traditional grandfather clock but without requiring weekly winding. The Vineyard Grandfather Clock's triple movement plays the charming Westminster and Ave Maria Chimes - the classic Westminster Chimes as heard from London's famous Big Ben clock , Shubert's classic Ave Maria chime , andclassic Bim-Bam chime which strikes a "bim-bam" tone at the half-hour and then counts the corresponding hours with the same tone. This Vineyard Grandfather Clock's movement also includes a convenient automatic nighttime chime silence option and adjustable volume control. Adjustable floor levelers are located under all four corners to ensure the clock remains level on uneven surfaces or carpet. Requires two C batteries, not included. This American made Ridgeway Clock Company grandfather clock comes complete with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty on both parts and workmanship.
