Clock Restoration


Case Restoration

Antique clock cases that need restoration, are sympathetically restored using materials and methods that are contemporary with the age of the item. These clock cases are not over restored, but joints are repaired, veneer glued down, Hand French polished and wax polished, so that the age and character are preserved as well as the value while making the item more presentable.

Many clock cases have fine details such as boule work, marquetry, brass beading or veneer inlay that has come adrift or gone missing. Tim is very experienced in these areas and regularly restores cases for private collectors, museums, and antique dealers.

In the same way the mechanics of these clocks can be expertly repaired, cleaned and serviced.

As a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors as well as the Sydney Clock Makers Association, your item will be in the best care.
