Vanderbilt Grandfather Clock

Vanderbilt Grandfather Clock

Tom Van Tamelen was commissioned by the Ridgeway Clock Company to design stunning limited edition grandfather clocks and wall clocks inspired by America’s largest home, The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.
Ridgeway Biltmore Vanderbilt Limited Edition Grandfather Clock 2538
Inspired by many priceless artifacts from George Vanderbilt’s collection, this magnificent timepiece embodies the quality and craftsmanship that is Biltmore. Hand crafted in the United States and finished in Estate Cherry, the solid hardwood case features only the finest American Cherry and Crotch Mahogany throughout. The gracefully arched split pediment design shows a book matched crotch mahogany field that is framed with an inlaid border of hard maple and ebonized anegre. The featured vine motif combines Avodire, Black Cherry, Magnolia, and Padauk in a brilliant arrangement. A spiral-carved finial rests on a reeded base between the solid cherry crown mouldings. Only 250 of these limited edition clocks will be created as they will build one to symbolize each of the 250 rooms in the Biltmore Estate.
