Walter H. Durfee began selling tallcase clocks in Providence, RI in 1877. In 1880, a year before he formed "Durfee & Enches" with antique collector Charles Pendleton, the pair traveled to England in search of antiques. Durfee came into met with manufacturers of clocks and cases who would later ship the parts to the United States, which he would reassemble in Providence. When he added a bell chime, then recently patented in England , he so increased the demand for hall clocks in America that he became known as "the father of the modern grandfather clock."
In 1886, Durfee met bellmaker, Harrington while on a trip to England . They saw the possibility of using Harrington's tubes as clock bells, with Elliot's clock movements in longcase clocks. In 1887, Harrington's American patent for a clock chime apparatus was assigned to Walter H. Durfee.
Durfee used an unique special etched brass hinge on his tallcase clocks that has become a noted symbol. In 1894, Durfee stopped importing Harrington's bells and began manufacturing his own. Durfee clocks are counted among the classics of the industry and some have been or are even shown in famous clock museums.
