The Zeeland Historical Society acquired this exceptional Herman Miller Wall Clock back in mid-November, 2016. We have been searching for its history and age but, so far, no luck. In the meantime, check out this beauty!
The clock is located in Main Street on the second floor of the Zeeland Museum.
The Herman Miller Clock Company was launched in 1926, as the clock division of office furniture manufacturer, Herman Miller.
Then, in 1937, Dirk Jan De Pree, the company’s CEO, turned the Herman Miller Clock Company over to his brother-in-law, Howard Miller, who renamed it the Howard Miller Clock Company.
What many people do not know is that Howard Miller was the son of Herman Miller, and when the doors of the Howard Miller Clock Company actually opened, it was directly across the street from the Herman Miller Furniture Company, both of which still remain in Zeeland, Michigan.
Herman Miller Clocks are comparably very rare compared to Howard Miller Clocks, and are prized by collectors and interior decorators alike.
