We Take Pride in Our Restorations

People often wonder if their clocks can be restored.  The short answer is yes, we can restore anything.  The long answer is sometimes the cost of the restoration exceeds the value of the piece.  For instances where the cost or restoration exceeds the value you need to weigh the sentimental/family value to the market value.

Below is a kitchen  shelf clock from the early 1900's that unfortunately was stored in a damp basement for several decades.  The cost of the restoration was a little less than the value of the piece, however the joy the completed piece brought to the new owner is immeasurable.  This piece belonged to the customers grandmother and seeing it working was overwhelming.  Her gratitude in having a piece belonging to a long lost favorite relative, that others told her was beyond repair, was truly heartfelt.

I am indeed proud of this restoration, not only as it challenged my skills, but also because the completed piece meant so much to the owner.
