The Worlds Finest Grandfather Hall Clocks

 "The Duke of Marlborough"

Model 8861

The best! It doesn't get better than this. An extremely rare Herschede; only 104 were made in 1982. There is no other Herschede like it, The Duke Of Marlborough. A touch of English influence handsomely evident in the stately design of the Duke of Marlborough grandfather clock. Cabinet of rich cherry solids with burl cherry overlays with one inch bevel glass sides and door. Exquisite carvings add a touch of elegance to the beautiful Cerisier Antique finish. Left and right movement side access doors with out of sight storage for door key and winding crank. Dial is pierce, hand engraved with 24k gold finish.  Raised black Arabic numerals and hands, also featuring a small second hand to count off seconds. A choice of three melodies is a feature of Herschede's renown American made nine tubular bell cable wound movement. The Westminster, Whittington, and Canterbury chimes may be changed as desired with striking hour count. Pendulum and weight shells of quality brass lacquered to preserve the finish. A choice of nickel plated or brass tubes, a matter of choice. In addition, there is an option of a custom made three vial pendulum. This Herschede also has the circa 1982 A64 new tooling 9 tubular movement. The Duke of Marlborough was a clock for the centennial celebration of the company, unfortunately Herschede would close its doors before that celebration.
