"Elizabeth" Grandfather Clock

CIRCA 2012

** SOLD APRIL 2013 **

Designed by Gary Armstrong, Elizabeth is made from Hard Rock Maple, Andaman Red Padauk and measures 14.5 inches deep x 25.5 inches wide x 92 inches high.

A tribute to Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee this year, Elizabeth was inspired by Queen Elizabeth I.

The maple seeks to emulate her notorious alabaster complexion and the use of Andaman Red Padauk mimics her striking ruby red lips, making Elizabeth as stunning in appearance as this formidable Queen.

The diamond pattern commemorates the Diamond Jubilee, and boasts 390 Maple diamond squares, each centered with a ruby Red Padauk and polished brass dome headed pin. The face features an intricate floral design inlaid with Canadian Maple, Andaman Red Padauk, Madrona, Satinwood, Boxwood, Purple Heart, Holly, and Ebony veneers.

A graceful swan neck pediment with center finial crowns the long-case hood, concealing the Franz Hermle eight-day triple-chime movement.

The infamous London clock tower Big Ben is to be renamed Elizabeth Tower. An historic moment in time, sixty minutes celebrates Her Majesty's sixty year reign giving the Elizabeth Clock special commemorative distinction.
