Antique Clock Beveled Glass Door

This antique clock had a broken glass in it so I used a pc of old mirror and removed the silvering The old glass has more of a yellow color to it the newer glass has a much greener color. I save many types of old glass and on occasions have use my kiln to make new glass look old. I then put on a good inch and a half bevel on the glass My hand beveling machines are older than this old clock. They run with leather belts we use electric motors instead of steam now. Hand beveling old glass for this clock has kept its value.Hand beveling is a dieing trade. Antique Carriage Clocks have very thin glass and are the hardest to bevel. I bevel glass for many clock repair shops .
