    18th c 18th Century Dutch Longcase Clock

    On the top of the hood,is there a rectangular opening,or one that is covered by a board? Many of those clocks had pagoda tops that were too tall for modern ceilings and removed.

    Silas Hoadley clock for real?

    It looks right to me.The bone bushings in the movement were a Hoadley feature.The dial and label look to be in good original condition as is the stenciling.

    19th c ew adams eight day brass shelf column clock

    Tom Moberg would do a nice job of reproducing your original lower glass.you will be much happier if the reverse painting is done on a piece of old glass with ripples vs new plate glass.It is interesting that the gold seen on your tassel and pillar bases was stenciled with bronze powder.Earlier...

    Boardman Mirror Clock, earlier groaner movement

    Nice clock.The hinge repair may have been done by the same person that morticed in square wooden bushings in the plate of a wooden works clock that I saw pictured on the Cog Counter FB group page.
