The Bulova Allerton Antique Mantel Clock is a clock with a solid wood case and a walnut finish in Old World style. It comes with fluted pilasters on its angled corners, with carved accents for added decoration. The metal dial features a two-tone design, giving you a classier look. It also comes with a triple-chime movement, allowing you to choose among three melodies for the quarter-hour mark: you can choose from Bim-Bam, Ave Maria, or Westminster.

The clock also features a curved glass lens with a decorative screen.

One of the reviewers who loved this clock commented that it was a beautiful timepiece both in terms of its looks as well as its sound quality. She loved how it was possible to choose the chime she wanted, and how it even came with an option for turning off the chimes. She appreciated the option of night shut-off which she felt gave her ultimate control of the chimes. She also confirmed that it kept great time, and she was amazed at how nice it was especially given the price. Another buyer got this clock for her mother, and she loved how it looked just like a traditional antique clock but made use of modern technology to provide electronic functions and accuracy. She confirmed that it was very easy to set up for the user’s chosen chime as well as other settings. She also loved the option of having the chimes automatically turn off during the night. Her mom was reportedly very happy with it. Another reviewer commended this clock for having a very beautiful wooden case that was even better than the photograph. Another buyer shared how happy he was with his purchase, as he loved how this clock looked, and he liked how easy it was to read even from a distance of up to 20 feet.
Meanwhile, one of the reviewers who loved the overall looks of the clock complained about the face and pendulum being a bit disappointing, as they seemed a bit cheap and looking a bit tinny. Still, she conceded that it was a nice clock for the mantel, although in hindsight, she said that she might have been willing to pay a bit more for a better item.
From these comments, we would be very happy to recommend this antique clock as a decorative and functional add-on to any mantel or table top. The antique look will definitely grab anyone’s attention, and you would not have to worry about the noise as you have absolute control of the chimes.
