GERMAN GRANDFATHERS CLOCK EIGHT DAY TIME AND STRIKE
VINTAGE GERMAN GRANDFATHERS CLOCK EIGHT DAY TIME AND BIM BAM STRIKE

We offer here a very unique German Grandfather's clock carved out of dark oak. There are Grandfather clocks and there are real Grandfather's clocks. They all look and sound different. This clock is the real Mc Coy with the deep throated and authoritative strike on the hour and half hour. A single bim bam on the half hour and a bim bam once for every hour in a sonorous sound that radiates through the house to project old world elegance and class. The feeling it gives is that of the Ambassador, Cardinal or wealthy industrialist residence.

Specifications: overall height is 76 1/4 inches. Width is 23 inches at base tapering down with design to 19" to top of rounded case. Depth is 10 "There is a fancy beveled glass design in front through which you can see the two weights that drive the movement and strike respectively. There is a brass key in lock which allows the case to be locked. It keeps perfect time as we write and was oiled and cleaned a few years back. We estimate the age to be the late 1920s and 1930s. This is the best sounding bim bam we have heard in many years as the case was artfully designed in such a way as to have the chime strike fully resonate in a commanding and authoritative way.
