Antique Clock Repair and Restoration Specialists

Clock restoration project - 18th Century Longcase Clock

Some clocks are not all wonderfully valuable items but cherished by the client because it has been in the family for many generations. The clock below in the photograph was such a clock. An American client asked us to undertake the restoration of what was basically a pile of firewood but nevertheless valuable to her. The first photo is basically the clock hood. Clocks coming in for restoration in this state is not uncommon.
