This is the grandfather clock that keeps time in our home. I have always loved grandfather clocks and am so happy to have this memento of hubby's father in our lives.
It is very soothing to hear the strike of the clock counting the hours, and the tone played at 15, 30, and 45. Our house is small, so you can hear it everywhere. It is part of the ambiance they we are accustomed to... it's a little hard to sleep without it.
