Antique German Grandfather Clock

If you are looking for a beautiful addition to your home, then you should consider an antique german grandfather clock.

These clocks are a rare find and can be very expensive, but the quality and beauty of the workmanship is often well worth the price that you must pay to own one of these amazing antiques.

Grandfather clocks, even those created by the same person or by the same company, can vary widely.

Some antique German grandfather clocks, also known as longcase or tallcase clocks, have a glass front to allow you to see the beauty of the pendulum and weights in motion, while other German grandfather clocks have a closed case that protects them (more so than glass) from accidental damage.

German grandfather clocks are sometimes carved

with fine, elegant decorations, like those that were sometimes created by Dr. Emanuel Hanky.

Dr. Emanuel Hanky was one of the most famous clock makers of the Black Forest area in the early 1800s, and is responsible for some of the arguably most beautiful antique clocks that survive to this day.

If you are looking for an antique german clock, you may have to do some research online, as these are a highly specialized item and not likely to be found or identified properly at local antique outlets.

One of the best places to go to find beautiful antique German clocks in good working condition is Germany itself, where estate sales and antiques dealers may help you make your dream of owning a German longcase clock come true.
