Interestingly, grandfather clocks were initially known as long-case clocks. The term “grandfather clock” came from a popular song of the same name, which was inspired by the tale of a clock that stood in a hotel lobby and stopped after the death of its owner. Grandfather clocks are traditionally chiming, but this doesn’t have to be the case, especially with more modern renditions. If you’re looking to incorporate this timepiece into your home decor, keep reading for a selection of modern grandfather clocks.
