Why are grandfather clocks so popular?

Grandfather clocks are probably the most attractive time pieces that you can get. They are just so beautiful and elegant, and one is well aware of all the craftsmanship that has gone into making them. Grandfather clocks have been around since the late 1600’s and have been popular ever since. With the pendulum and weights housed in a beautiful wooden case and the clock sitting on top they look absolutely resplendent. They usually chime every fifteen minutes with the repeated gongs on the hour. They add something really special to people’s houses in a way that is hard to beat.

How do you know which are the authentic grandfather clocks?

Like many antiques you have to be very careful about what you buy as there are many grandfather clocks which are not authentic. Either they have been unsympathetically restored with non original parts or they may be reproductions altogether. To the layman it is very difficult to tell good authentic grandfather clocks from fake or poor quality ones. It is always a good idea to get them authenticated first by a professional or to buy them from a well established reputable dealer.

Where is a good place to buy grandfather clocks?

Obviously, you could take a bit of a gamble and go to auctions to buy grandfather clocks. Auctions can often be quite a hit and miss affair and items are usually sold as seen. So do as much research as possible and ask as many questions as you can from the auctioneer. The safest method is to buy grandfather clocks from well established antique clock sellers. Quite often they will also have a workshop as it they do often need maintenance with so many moving parts. One seller of grandfather clocks that is worth a special mention is called Pendulum of Mayfair. Their reputation for selling and fixing grandfather clocks is well established the world over. They have an excellent website at, where you can find out all about them and even see some of their grandfather clocks for sale. These grandfather clocks are impossible to resist.
