A grandfather clock made by the Sligh Clock Company in Zeeland, Michigan in 1981. It carries the Trend name as Sligh bought Trend Clock Company in 1968 and continued the name. The clock was purchased in 1981 from the Chicago Clock Company in Chicago, IL.

The wooden case is stained black and has gold trim and gold painted embossed oriental details such as the garden and bridge scene at the foot of the clock. It's dimensions are approximately 79 inches tall, 18 inches wide and 11 inches deep. It has a brass lyre pendulum and there are three brass-shelled weights - one driving the time, one the chime and one the strike. The dial has a moon-phase indicator - showing the phase of the moon during the month.

The German movement is 8-day (wind once per week), triple chime, and weight-driven on chains. There are three chime tunes ((St. Michael's, Whittington, and Westminster) or silent that can be selected. The Westminster chime will start with 4 notes on the quarter, then 8 on the 2nd quarter, then 12 on the 3rd quarter and 16 on the hour. The other two tunes have twice any many notes each quarter.

The movement has been overhauled in November 2023: disassembled, each component cleaned, worn bushings replaced, assembled, adjusted and freshly lubricated for many more years of service. The clock is fully functional.

$750. Cash only. Transportation and setup of clock is negotiable. Contact me via email (select Reply above) or phone/text (nine 03 zero three fiftysix) for more information. Thanks for looking!
