Oak Longcase Clock

An oak longcase clock

This is an oak longcase clock with mahogany crossbanding made around 1820. The case had suffered from neglect and damage, also the loss of the feet.

The front panel to the base is made from two boards and the glued joint had separated with braces on the back to hold them in place. The whole of the lower half of the clock was removed from the rest of the case to allow for the re-jointing of the front panel, also a new base board was fitted as the old one was broken due to the weights dropping through to the floor.

The structure of the clock was also re-aligned so as to be more vertical. The crossbanding was replaced in several places using old reclaimed mahogany. The whole of the case was then stripped and re polished.
