A between 5 and 6 feet (1,524 m and 1,829 m) high floor clock is a Mid-size Floor Clock called a grandmother clock in the United States. The name refers to the Grandfather Clock. Since women in the 19th century were smaller than men, the smaller floor clock took that name. Illustrated: a mid-size Chinese clock from an amateur horologist friend.
