Antique French Clock Movement and Case Restoration
We have restored antique French clocks for clients across the UK and beyond over 45 years.
French clocks come in many different styles, and some of the earlier clocks are extremely valuable, particularly those made by well-known French makers.
Some of these early clocks were made with fine French movements, bronze figures and gold ormolu mounts.
Below you can see some examples of our restoration work on fine French clocks
A Very Fine Early French Mantel Clock by Gay Vicarino and Company
This clock has been restored in our workshop. It was rusty and worn when it came in for restoration. The movement has now been fully restored to a high standard. The dial has been gilded and repainted, and the bronze acanthus leaf foliage has been repaired and coloured. The base mount has been gilded in 24 carat gold.
This clock has a silk suspension and has a pre-rack strike which works on a count wheel.
Below you can see a French dial after restoration. The chapter ring has been silvered using silver sulphate, the centre has been gilded using 24 carat gold powder, and the lower section has been gilded using mercury.
