NEW Sternreiter Mantel Clocks
NCI is proud to announce the newest member of it's AMERICAN COLLECTION. We have had several requests for a large mantel clock at a good price and have commissioned STERNREITER to build us the NEW HAVEN STEEPLE CLOCK.
Elias Ingraham (1805-85), a cabinet maker, was commissioned by George Mitchell to design and build a new style of clock case. Ingraham came to work for Mitchell in May of 1828 and eventually designed the sharp gothic clock case in about 1845. This “steeple clock” style has ever since been one of the most popular designs in American cabinetry. It has been copied and redesigned countless times over the last two centuries.
The New Haven steeple clock from Sternreiter is named for the town in Connecticut which holds some of America’s most beautiful examples of gothic architecture. Available with either mechanical or quartz Westminster chimes, the New Haven features a reverse-painted glass which harkens the beauty and complexity of a gothic cathedral’s rose window.
The NEW HAVEN is now available!
NCI is proud to announce the immanent arrival of the LINCOLN TAMBOUR CLOCK. This clock will be a great addition to our AMERICAN COLLECTION. Finally we have added another fine design to our line of tambour clocks. For too long has our great-selling BRAHMS stood alone.
STERNREITER is set to release the LINCOLN in the summer of 2005. The LINCOLN will feature a large readable dial and warm Westminster chimes on rods.
