Grandfather clocks have always fascinated me. I remember seeing it in our old house where it was an antique. It was made of teak wood or mahogany I suppose. Its rich colour made it look even more majestic. I used to wonder how the pendulum inside kept on swinging from one side to another incessantly. Later I learnt about Pendulums in my Physics classes and became even more interested in it. Now the convention of grandfather clocks has gone. It is more than wood now. They come in all kinds of costly metals. In the movie Titanic, you would have seen an entire range of pendulum clocks. Though it takes a huge space in your apartment, you apparently are only proud of it. It gives you a cosy and royal feel to your apartment. Large house anyways flaunt their antique collection. But why antique? There are a lot of shops offering new pendulum clocks at competitive prices. If not a bigger one, you buy something which fits in your space and budget. When I was searching for such a clock for my friend I found a lot and lot of irresistible artistic and new grandfather clocks online. Not only grandfather clocks but also mantel clocks. So if you want to make your house look like a rich old bungalow, a small investment would not be a bad decision.
