These French style mantel clocks are always a pleasure to work on. This particular example isn't as ornate as others, however it has a quiet charm about it.
One thing that this requires is to remember not to get my thumb in the photo. The other is to remove the old blackening and grime, then redoing the process.
As you can see. My desk is almost as grubby as the clock
After a scrub and a bit of elbow grease. Or wax, which ever is better. The clock is back to being shiny again. I've also worked on the bezel and dial. Should look great when the customer gets it home.
