Case Studies

Mahogany Longcase clock

This sad looking longcase clock was purchased by a client through a local auction house. After close inspection and discussions on the extent of restoration needed a detailed list of all works and costs was compiled.

Clock Hood

  • To treat hood for woodworm
  • To secure loose frame
  • To rebuild damaged top section
  • To make missing swan neck mouldings
  • To supply and fit missing ball and spears
  • To make missing fretwork to match
  • To replace missing masking
  • To rebuild hood door and replace broken glass
  • To replace broken door hinges

Main Trunk

  • To secure loose back board
  • To secure loose bottom panel
  • To replace lock and broken hinges
  • To re-lay lifting veneer to case door
  • To repair chipped veneer to front
  • To replace missing sections of moulding
  • To make missing fretwork

Although the clock needed extensive restoration the overall condition of the case was good apart from small areas of decayed polish. The movement was very dirty and needed a complete overhaul and the clock face was badly worn and needed re-painting.

With knowledge and skilled workmanship this mahogany longcase clock has been lovingly restored back to its former glory and stands proudly on display in the clients hallway.
