  • ” Beautiful clock, definitely catches the eye and will last for years. However, close up the quality should be better for the price. First clock arrived damaged and unusable. Second clock had many flaws (crooked pieces, holes, dents, sloppy soldering, etc.) in the metal but didn’t want to bother with returning…again. “Angela from Langhorne

Some good and bad reviews from the customers

  • ” I absolutely love it!!!! Looks so nice in my room. Nice chime sound. It was definitely worth the price. “Cindy from Germantown
  • “I have a small cottage home with small rooms. I need small furniture and accents or the rooms just look like “furniture storage” spaces! This Grandfather clock makes a nice transition piece from the living room to the dining room and does not overwhelm the space. I combine many styles of furniture and decoration…just what pleases me! I really like this clock as it looks like a country piece. The chime that does not strike from 10 pm to 6 am is nice too. We had a little “glitch” with my first order but Wayfair made it right. I appreciate their great customer service and am delighted with my purchase!” Joanne from Vancouver, WA
  • “Item came sooner than expected. Was disappointed with purchase. Item is cheaply made and for price was expecting a nice piece of furniture. Was fairly simple to put together until it came time to put the clock piece on and the particle board began to chip away. Would recommend to continue looking and save your money.”Carrie from New Lenox
  • “It looks perfect for the place I needed something. The chime is really disappointing- it’s not a nice rich tone- it’s a cheap battery tinny tone… but I guess that’s reflected in the price.”Susan from Fishkill
  • “Exactly what I was looking for. For the price it is v’ery good quality. Size is exactly as described. Would definitely recommend.” Tara from Orlando, FL
