Which grandfather clocks are available?

Sanding varnish, noble mahogany, solid oak, high-quality walnut and pyramid veneer as well as maple inlays bear witness to the best craftsmanship of times gone by. The type of wood determines the colour and grain. The glass grandfather clock in chrome or with gold-plated brass creates a fresh impression with its modern design that goes well with modern furniture. A traditional grandfather clock suits just about any style of furnishing and sets accents. Gold-plated and chrome-plated versions give the observer a noble impression. In addition to the design, the technical equipment, the movement, is of course the second most important criterion for choosing one of these clocks. Monthly runners, the number of sound tubes as well as the tubular gong, the bar gong or a cable movement are further criteria according to which one chooses. Clocks of this type with an English style are in the middle range in terms of price, but enjoy great popularity in German living rooms and salons.
What criteria determine the quality of a Kieninger floor clocks mechanical of the highest quality?
The clocks of the family-owned company are considered to be of very high quality and are in the premium segment. The price-performance ratio is quite good and they have a clear added value. This lies above all in the cosy living feeling. Every person is different. In addition to the different design, the material, the size and the sound of the striking mechanism, the handling naturally also plays a decisive role. Clocks from this company with tradition have been among the most popular home accessories for many generations. However, the striking mechanism should not be perceived as annoying. Older models often cannot be muted manually. The models in the current collection have an automatic night shut-off and can also be muted manually.

How can the longevity be improved?
The grandfather clock is and was a utilitarian object, home accessory or even furniture, which sometimes had a small box or seating in the lower part (bench). It was considered an eye-catcher for any room, be it in the hallway, drawing room, anteroom or living room.
The placement plays a big role. Preferably opposite the door, so that it immediately catches the eye. Its sound is better perceived in quiet rooms. The room should be clean, dry and not too hot. Wood warps due to moisture and damages the movement. The clocks of the family business are of a very high quality, but it is important that the grandfather clock stands straight and is not constantly placed somewhere else. These clocks only need to be cleaned every 10 to 15 years.

What are the advantages of a grandfather clock?
These clocks are more stable than wall clocks and larger than table clocks. The grandfather clock is therefore ideal as an eye-catcher. These clocks from the family business give rooms perspective. The fine materials and solid workmanship ensure a very long life. Antique grandfather clocks must be wound. The family business will be happy to advise you on request. The clock movement determines the type of operation of the grandfather clock. Grandfather clocks are easy to care for and convey a very special flair.
Is it possible to have these clocks customised?
That depends, of course, on whether they can be realised. Engravings, dedications, special decorations and changes in design are always possible. An e-mail or a visit to Kieninger is worthwhile in any case! The family business has been offering individual solutions for four generations.

In which cases should Kieninger be contacted directly?
Of course, this depends very much on the respective "emergency". The worst case is when the case or the movement has been damaged during transport. But here, too, a satisfactory solution can always be found. An old family grandfather clock is to be refurbished as a wedding present. In this case, it is advisable to send an e-mail with a detailed specification or drawing. Kieninger will get back to you immediately and will be happy to advise you in detail.
