Starting in 1947, the Howard Miller Clock Company produced scores of modern wall clocks and table clocks designed by George Nelson Associates.(At that time, Nelson was Director of Design at Herman Miller Furniture Company.) They also produced Nelson's "Bubble Lighting" through the late 1970s, selling the business in the early 1980s.Westclox also made sunbursts and starbursts, as these mid-century clocks are variously known, one of which had 48 spokes—some were made of brass and capped with wooden balls, others were solid wood and fashioned in the shape of menacing spikes.Elgin used teak and brass for its spokes, while Lux put flowers at the ends of theirs, creating so-called "atomic daisies." The faces of Lux clocks were also arresting—the dial of one design resembled a 1960s Pop Art red-and-orange bulls-eye.Other than removing the hands and then the 4 retaining nuts is there any "gotcha's" involved?I'd just like to remove the works and see if anything looks remiss but not at the risk of running into a "Ya shoulda done this" versus a "ya could do this"..it goes thru the 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and the hour melody but then it's supposed to chime the number of hours which doesn't happen.
Question 2, The chimes work ok all except it skips the Hour Chimes..Bill Mc Donald Hi Bill, You have a nice looking clock. Its possible it needs service as to why it,s not chiming when it should.It looks reasonably clean but could be some wear or dirt causing problems. Your clock is made by Howard Miller and has a Hermle movement from Germany.After World War II, design evolved from Art Deco and Streamline Moderne to Mid-Century Modern, which reigned from the mid-1940s until the mid-1960s.No corner of the home was untouched by this new, casual, atomic-era aesthetic, including furnishings and accessories such as clocks.
