Uncovered escapement slate clock c1900

It is a restoration I’ve simply accomplished. Moderately than bang on about it in poor health simply summarise what was completed.

  1. Motion stripped down and all brass chemically cleaned on a 3 stage course of.
  2. Refinishing the black to take away the mineral degradation of the slate over 100 years
  3. Motion setup and calibration

Theres solely three operations right here however these things takes a very long time so restorations of this sort are fairly expensive. On a standard slate I might query whether or not it was value it because of the flat values in the mean time – a great slate is £200 to £500.

I did this clock as a result of…it wanted some love and I may see the potential, nevertheless, had it not been for the attractive ruby escapement paddles it may not have made the restoration que!. I’m very glad I put the time in on this one because the picture doesn’t do it justice – its an absolute corker, if considerably heavy.

When you’ve got a slate you need completed I’m more than pleased to do it however you’ll have to ship and decide it up your self – my again cant take it!.
