The origins of the grandfather clock, also known as a longcase clock, can be traced back to the late 17th century in England. The name "grandfather clock" is said to have originated from the song "My Grandfather's Clock" written by Henry Clay Work in 1876, which tells the story of a tall clock owned by the songwriter's grandfather.

By the 18th century, grandfather clocks became popular not only for their timekeeping accuracy but also as status symbols in wealthy households. Their impressive height and elegant designs made them prominent pieces of furniture, often placed in prominent areas of homes.

Today, grandfather clocks continue to be cherished as both functional timepieces and works of art, carrying with them centuries of history and craftsmanship. So, add a touch of timeless charm to your holiday decor with the Grandfather Clock Ornament by Old World Christmas!
