Enjoying my Howard Miller Notthinham II. I have owned my Howard Miller Nottingham II since 5/1999 and it is as lovely and as pleasing today as the day it arrived. I have enjoyed its beauty and its lovely soothing musical chimes every day since its arrival in my home. I've used it as a wonderful decretive piece in my Living Room though it would be lovely in a hallway, in one's personal library, anywhere a special touch is needed in the home. Very satisfying.
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.
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.
