    Ansonia Figure Clock case help

    Thank you Tom. Your clock looks fabulous! I did find out what clock it was as I have a Tran Du Ly Ansonia book. It’s “The Artist”. I do feel pretty fortunate to have gotten it. There are two very small broken parts on the left side front and back legs but otherwise it appears to be in...

    Ansonia Figure Clock case help

    Hi Everyone, I just acquired this clock today. I have always wanted a figure clock and Ansonia is my favorite maker so I decided to purchase this one at a fair price (at least I think I did). However, I was looking at the case and it would seem someone tried to polish the case as evidenced by...

    Sessions restoration

    So a big thank you to all of you who helped with this dilemma. The paint remover worked wonders. I purchased "Oops" because I had read really good reviews on it. I was able with the help of old dental tools (which work wonders with detail) to scrape off the paint and leave the majority of the...

    Seth Thomas clock case label restoration

    I bought this clock case off eBay for a challenge in repairing and restoration. It certainly has been that. I have included some before's and afters of what I have so far. I didn't need to refinish the case (the after photos isn't that great) it was just covered in muck and mire. I started...

    So far so good, Japanese clock case repair/restoration

    I just wanted to post a couple of pictures of what I believe is a Japanese wall clock. I question if it's a regulator. At any rate, this was a great challenge for me. I still have some touch ups to do, but I'm getting there. The clock still needs replacement glass, a suspension rod/spring...

    Sessions restoration

    Here are the photos of the inside. Looks like the person cut away at the sides of the inside of the clock to make the movement fit. Looks like the original movement was attached to the back of the clock. Guess this'll be a bigger project than I thought. S'okay I like projects.

    Sessions restoration

    Yeah, all the way home I kept saying, "How could someone do that?" Anyway, I thought I would include a photo of the front. This clock has a cylindrical pendulum which I seldom see which is what intrigued me most about it. Thanks again.

    Sessions restoration

    Hi, Did the thumbnail not come through? It's just a photo of the back with the painted label. Can anyone else not see it? I'll try attaching again. Thanks.

    Sessions restoration

    Hi everyone, I was out an about today and found a beautiful Sessions clock (I think it's a cottage clock). Sadly some fool painted it white, but that's not my dilemma. When I turned the clock around I saw the label still there, painted over. I was heartsick. I have included a picture in...
