Hermle ANSTEAD #HNA010953041171
Anstead is magnificent, finely crafted triple chime grandfather clock that represents the very best of the tradition. The dark oak cabinet, made in Vermont, is complimented by a graceful bonnet pediment. The crown feature raised, hand rubbed burl veneer overlays on top, front and sides of crown and a carved center motif, while the base has a matching hand rubbed burl veneer overlay panel on the front. Deeply hand carved face caps on the hook match the three-tiered base with hand carved face caps and outfitted with a hidden storage area. The clock has a lockable waist door with beveled glass in the front and side panels, side access doors and floor levelers in the base. The matching set of accessories included a dial with applied brass Arabic numerals, a moving moon disk and understated cast center and corner spandrels. The pendulum bob has a matching cast center disk and the weight shells have a matching band. The Hermle flagship German-made mechanical 8-day cable driven movement plays all three of the most renowned clock melodies: Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington. The clock has a second hand feature and automatic night shut-off so as not to disrupt anyone’s slumber.
