Cabinet work was mostly produced using solid oak, solid and veneered mahogany & veneered walnut.
My name is Simon Bean, I have been restoring antique clock dials for some years and offer full satisfaction with the quality of my work.
As you look at the clock from the front,the weight on the left hand side is responsible for making it strike and the weight on the right hand side is responsible for making it go.
have had dealings with every type of grandfather clock imaginable in my 30 years in the industry - including, of course, antique grandfather clocks ("longcase" or "tallcase" clocks).
If these visitors have knowledge of your clock, they can post comments about it here.
Also, if I know anything about your clock, I will also post a comment for you.
