Interesting fact, The Oxford English Dictionary states that the popular 1876 song My Grandfather's Clock is responsible for the common name "grandfather clock" being applied to the longcase clock.[6]The song was composed an American songwriter by the name of Henry Clay Work who discovered a long grandfather clock in The George Hotel in Yorkshire, England. When he asked about the clock, he was informed that it had two owners. After the first owner died the clock became inaccurate and when the second owner died, the clock stopped working all together. The story inspired Henry to create the song. Height 26cm (10inches) Width 9cm (3.5 inches) Depth 5.5cm (2 inches)
