    Ceramic clock face cracks

    Hi, I'm looking for any tips to help the appearance of a ceramic clock face. It has several cracks and they are quite dark compared to the rest of the face. Is there any way to lighten them in order to make it less obvious and more pleasing please?

    Wag on the wall/Postman's Clock

    I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get hold of the hour hand for this. It has a big hole and would be about 3 inches long. It has a makers mark of F-B on the side of the wood. I believe many were just cottage industries but has anyone any idea of what it might stand for or its...

    Ansonia Zenith - gilding tips

    I want to try my hand at gilding this clock. My question is, is it all gilded? There are brass parts and I wondered whether they should be kept as brass rather than gilding? The top and bottom are obviously gilded or plated but wondering about the top and bottom plates and the 4 corner parts...

    Ansonia Tower Gong

    I presume the base was the one with the figurines rather than the clock on it's own or is there such a beast? Does this touch base with you? :cool:

    Ansonia Tower Gong

    Hi, I have an Ansonia Tower Clock which does not have a Gong. As these usually come as a figure clock, would the Gong have been attached to the base or to part of the clock? I'm presuming it would be on the base as I can't see any way of attaching it to other parts which is a shame. Has anyone...

    Clock Help Ansonia Figure Clock part

    Hi, I recently came across the Ansonia Clock shown below. It seems from Tran Duy Ly that it is part of a larger figural layout. Just on the off chance that someone may have any of these parts without the clock, I'm just wondering if such a thing exists. It seems that this clock is the same one...

    Waterbury Gingerbread

    Hi All, I recently obtained this for very little. It really surprises me how cheap they are as they just go and go! Would anyone know what this model is called and I know the 5 3/8" means a length of something but can't remember what exactly. Maybe someone can tell me as I have had differing...
