This was a non working antique that needed compete restoration. Everything was done. The clock and case were both restored as well as the gilding and art work.
I truly enjoy working on ornate gilded clocks. Repairing and restoring the movement is the easiest part . Reproducing the maker's creativity takes a little more effort and talent.
Unique or one of a kind clocks have their own sets of challenges and make for a project that I enjoy working on. You can feel comfortable with bringing me your unique clock to repair, clean, or restore.
I can repair broken cases , moulding, glass, and just about anything else . All woodworking is done on site with period correct mouldings and trim.
I locate hard to find parts or components. If someone says they can't fix it, give me a call. Sometimes I can do the impossible.
I love working on Seth Thomas, Ingraham , and Ansonia , just to mention a few American clocks.
I also love working on many French clocks such as Japy Freres, A.D Mougin, Jean Minoche, Vincenti , and others.

You can tell what the masters thought and how they solved issues of the times. They are more than just timepieces. They are truly works of art.
