Examples of Antique Clock Dial Restoration

In addition to our clock movement and case restoration services we repaint and restore clock dials and faces this work involves painted finishes of different sorts to match the original concept and enamel dial restoration which involves re-firing techniques.

On the left you can see a photographed of a damaged enamelled dial.

On the right photograph of the dial restored and on the clock.

 

Enamel dial restoration is in fact porcelain restoration and uses very much the same techniques, an enamel dial which is damaged can be restored back to its original condition without any sign of damage whatsoever, the main criteria here though as with any restoration is that the money has to be within the item for the restoration to be viable for the owner.

All our dials are restored using traditional paint techniques.

We undertake dial and face painting and clock re-silvering in exactly the same fashion as when they were originally made. We paint clock dials using paint and pigments of the period and we also copy the original artists naive techniques.

On scottish dials we lay gold leaf as per the original dial.

Here are some recent before and after examples of our clock dial restoration work.

The long case dial with moonphase on the left was as you see extremely damaged and rusty.
