In Grandma's Time

While constantly writing about grandfather clocks, I was totally unaware of the fact that there were clocks which were specifically classified as being a grandmother clock. It would have remained unknown to me had I not visited the The ClocksBlog.com website and read about it.

If anyone had asked me I would not have been able to tell the difference. To me they would all fall under the category of being a grandfather clock, including wall clocks and mantel clocks. How wrong I would have been. It so turns out that Grandmother Clocks are definitely clocks which have their own spot in the interior design by standing by themselves on the floor.

Not all floor clocks are grandmother clocks though. It mainly has to do with the height of the clock in question. Whether your home decor is enriched with one of the Ridgeway clocks, Kieninger clocks, Howard Miller clocks or Hermle clocks, does not necessarily mean it qualifies as a grandmother clock. You can find more information on this topic on the clocks blog about the how, what and when.

I suppose even atomic clocks could be called a grandmother clock if they would be a floor clock and short enough. You can really see the difference looking at the Howard Miller designs; it is the greatest selection in both grandfather and grandmother clocks.

Don't be fooled by the name Howard Miller grandfather clocks though; grandma has her 'hands' in time as well!
