The Clock  
Click on image for high resolution picture.

The world's finest grandfather clock. A true work of art. Precision crafted completely by hand. Nine tubular bell movement, made entirely by Herschede, plays 3 chime tunes. Westminster (an exact duplication of the Westminster Abbey chimes), the Whittington and the Canterbury. The 14-karat gold-plated dial is hand-engraved. Rare burled veneers cut and matched by hand one at a time. Then burnished and polished within an inch of their lives. A special finish creates the appearance of a 200-year-old antique. 108 feet of strip brass carefully hand-mitered. Beveled glass covering front and sides permitting a peek at brass weights and chrome chime tubes inside. Even the inside of the cabinet is completely finished. Possibly the finest timepiece ever made.

This clock was manufactured from 1938 to 1983 when Herschede closed it doors. This was the flagship clock of the Herschede line. This clock was shown at expositions in New York, London, Tokyo and Paris. It is world renowned, one is even inside the Kremlin.
