Antique Clock Repair and Restoration Specialists

Antique Clock Repair and Longcase Clock Restoration

We at Green and Cockburn Antique Clock Restoration are experts in the restoration of extremely damaged, very fine antique longcase clocks.

Restoring these grandfather clock movements and clock cases back to exactly the way they were made, using original materials and skills and techniques and knowledge as used by the original maker.

Sometimes these clocks are so damaged by fire or flood it seems impossible to repair them, but we can restore these items in such a way repairs will not be seen by the discerning eye or expert collector.

Minor repairs to complete renovation of antiques

We pride ourselves in what we call "invisible" repairs. This means that if we have restored an antique table, chair or a clock case you should not be able to see where the repair has been carried out. Please browse through the examples of our antique clock repairs and antique furniture restoration projects. We think you will agree that our repair and conservation work is of the highest standard and you can trust us to do the best renovations possible with your much loved and cherished antiques.

According to TV's Antiques Restoration Roadshow:"Malcolm Green of green and Cockburn is a multi-talented antiques restorer and is the resident clocks expert on the show and other BBC programs. Malcolm is a fully affiliated member of BAFRA and has been asked to undertake restoration of some very important antique clocks and furniture for private individuals, private collections and stately homes.
