We specialise in the conservation and restoration of English clocks dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries.


Long case clocks, bracket clocks, Viennese and black forest clocks, wall clocks, drop dial clocks; indeed any wooden cased clock or timepiece 

Boulle marquetry, ebonised and other clock cases

We specialise in the conservation and restoration of Ebonised, inlaid, marquetry and veneered clock cases.

This Boulle marquetry brass and tortoise shell clock case required extensive restoration. Approximately 25% of the brass and 10% of the turtle-shell was missing. The remaining marquetry needed removing to stabilise the substrate.

The ormolu mounts carried a duty stamp for 1740 allowing accurate dating.
