House Fire Clock Restored

Longcase Restoration – Samuel Quarman of Temple Cloud – Somerset – Circa 1770

The fire damaged clock had severe water damage and the heat had also caused many problems. The movement had distorted with the heat, and the wax in the dial had bubbled and melted.

With the help of our trusted cabinet maker we managed to save the case. We had to remove and repair several veneers and then glue them back using a vacuum process.
Having managed to straighten and carry out some serious repairs to the movement the clock was brought back to life again.
