Hello, I’m interested in restoring the glass painting on an E.N. Welch 8-day O.G. That I got at an antique mall. I’ve attached a photo of what it looks like now. I can’t make out much of the corner detail. Does anyone own a clock with a similar painting that they’d be willing to share with me as a guide? Thanks so much in advance!

If you don't get a pic here, try the clock general forum. One of those guys might have a pic for you.

Sir, thank you so much! Exactly what I was looking for. It's definitely not etched as can scrape a dot of it off the front with my fingernail, so it must be painted/frosted. I wish I had a clearer closer photo of the tablet so I could tell the grain size. I'd also like to see more of the bottom florals but beggars can't be choosy. On ebay/amazon, I found a pkg of 500 "14kt gold" or "Made in the USA" oval stickers which are about 1/2" x 5/16", the same size as the multitude of leaves on the design. I'm going to put the stickers on the glass and get a frosted glass spray can and see if the frosting is fine enough granularity, if not I'll brush on.
I appreciate your time!

Your original glass sounds like it is stenciled using varnish and a silver stenciling powder.

The glasses in these clocks are often called etched when many are not. I pulled the attachment together sometime back to further the discussion and thoughts around these sorts of glasses. It may be of interest, maybe not.
