The clock is a sleek chrome and smoked Lucite grandfather style designed by Nelson in the 1960s. It stands 56" tall by 13" wide and will be a real eye-catcher in someone's modern home. I love the iconic George Nelson hands on the clock, and I've read that it has melodic chimes which ring on the hour and half hour. This is going to be so much fun to have in the store! (I can say this because it won't be waking me up all night on the hour and half hour. That might color my definition of fun just a bit. And, yes, my daughter, SIL and the boys are still living behind the store while they debate the merits of a house versus a high-rise apartment.) All that aside, I think the clock is destined to become one of those pieces we get attached to and don't want to give up.
