Renowned for their precision and impeccable accuracy, Grandfather clocks or Longcase clocks have borne out of technological breakthroughs in horology in the late 1650s with the invention of pendulum clocks. These timekeeping devices were popular from the 17th up until the 20th century due to their frictionless time-keeping as a result of reduced swing and improved accuracy using the anchor mechanism. The original grandfather clocks had a traditional architectural design, but over time, a number of designs have gained prominence. They were not only effective timers but added a new dimension to stylish decoration. Many of these clocks have a tiny oval belly section where the pendulum oscillates along with a window. A good and varied selection of vintage and antique floor clocksbanjo clockstall clocks  and grandfather clocks are featured at Bidsquare’s grandfather clocks auction that encompasses a wide range of timepieces dating from the 17th century to the present day. 

These modern inventions are an amalgamation of science and exquisite artistry and are available in a variety of styles. The French "Comtoise clock," is characterized by curved lines and features a "pot-bellied" appearance. Another sought-after piece is the “Bornholm clock”, which originated in Denmark that featured a squarish head with a crown, a pointed decoration, as well as a window on either side to watch its movement. A "pinch waist" clock is another example of a vintage grandfather clock design. It has a body/middle segment that is shorter than the head and foot portions.

Longcase clocks remain a popular collecting area at Bidsquare’s vintage and antique floor, case, and grandfather clocks on sale and are designed by celebrated artists and makers such as George Graham, the Knibb family, Timothy Mason, Alker of Wigan, and Ahasuerus Fromanteel. Look through our selection of modern Grandfather clocks, Howard Miller Grandfather clocks, and antique German Grandfather clocks that are still coveted today for their beauty and the history surrounding them, and can still break records at the watch auction room.
