Majestic and beautifull. We love this clock.The minute I saw it in the showroom I new I had to have it. The chimes sound majestic, befitting this majestic clock. It is very big and stately (83" high). The st. Michaels chime is especially beautiful (one of four chime melodies). We use it as a decoration as well as to tell time. It is loud enough that we can hear it through out our two story home.It is very beautiful the espresso finish is unique and we get many,many compliments.If you are looking for a big showy,contemporary clock this is the one to get.
I Love This Clock. We bought this clock when we built a new home and purchased all new furniture. It is absolutely perfect for our room. It is stylish, functional, keeps perfect time, and is an overall great addition to the room. I have had numerous compliments on this clock. Everyone wants to know where I found it. I highly recommend this clock.
Just what I was looking for. I use this to display various nicknacks. I love the color, size, mirrors, and lighting. The glass door has etching that gives the door elegance. It comes with two mounts and a strap to secure the back of the cabinet to the wall so the cabinet cannot be pulled over. The directions for unpacking the cabinet and mounting the shelves are very helpful. It was delivered without any damage at all.
Love the look! I was looking for something that would provide a contempory look, but without looking harsh. I love the look and construction of this piece. The only thing that was negative was that the touch plate was missing from the packaging and we had to contact the manufacturer to send it to us. We therefore were delayed another week in getting our curios out of moving boxes and on the shelves, since we couldn't attach the cabinet to the wall until the touch plate was installed.
nice product, a bit pricey. very nice cabient, a little expensive for size (wife wanted this one) wall mount was included in box had to call company. gave as gift and couldn't hang cabient, very disappointing. if you're not worried about price, buy it. I would recommend this to a friend, but for the price i would suggest buying a stand alone that you could get for less money, and would have alot more space.
Very attractive piece. I looked and looked for a corner curio cabinet to display my small collection of Hummels. I saw this on line and it did a search to see if a store in my area had one and a furniture store did so I was able to go and see it before purchasing. It is a perfect size, not overwhelming at all and I am very happy with it. I like the etching on the front of the glass. It doesn't lock, however, if that would be important to you.
Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection. It’s what Howard C. Miller insisted on when he founded the company back in 1926, at the age of 21.
Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value. He expected nothing less than the best. And it was only under those strict conditions that he allowed his name to grace every clock manufactured at our sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan.
Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromised through three generations.
While the early years focused on the manufacture of chiming wall and mantel clocks, Howard Miller also produced trend-setting avant garde clocks that stand today in collectors' galleries. During World War II, Howard Miller joined forces with the Ford Motor Co. to produce anti-aircraft covers. In the 1960s, the company turned its attention to grandfather clocks, eventually earning the company the title of "World's Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer."
In 1989, Howard Miller began creating collectors cabinets with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship inherent in their clockmaking. Fashioned from glass and hardwoods, the cabinets are ideal for displaying heirlooms, plates, glassware and other collectibles.
As part of the company's continuing effort to bring customers only the best in handcrafted products, Howard Miller recently acquired three companies: The Hekman Furniture Company produces a strong cadre of carefully sculpted hardwood pieces that range from 18th and 19th Century reproductions, to contemporary products featuring fine metals and exotic woods. The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces. And the exquisite movement in many clocks they offer is made by Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany.
While Howard Miller products might once have been primarily considered as gifts for weddings, anniversaries and retirements, the company's expanded line of offerings is enticing more and more buyers who simply desire quality timepieces and furniture in their homes and businesses -- no occasion required.
They offer hundreds of items to complement any decor ranging from portable alarm clocks to desk sets to wall and mantel clocks to collectors cabinets to limited edition grandfather clocks. And in price ranges that may surprise you - from $5 to $15,000.
No matter the price of the purchase, you have the same assurance that Howard C. Miller provided when he began offering clocks more than 70 years ago: That quality be reflected both in the products they create, and in the people whose artistic talents they rely on to manufacture them.
The legacy left by Howard C. Miller isn't an easy one to emulate. But it's the only way they know of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection.
