Antique clock glass repair beveled glass in bezel

March 26th, 2011 Posted in Beveled Glass, Beveled glass lens, clock glass, clocks

The antique  clock sat on  the mantel since the beginning of time . One of the kids went to wind the clock and broke the glass .   I save old glass for clocks like this.  New glass is a different color green and is very flat.  The antique glass has a yellow hue and a distorted finish.  Sometimes the antique glass  has bubbles and blisters .  This is important when it comes to the value of the clock.  An antique  clock with new glass doesn’t retain its resale price.

I have antique beveling machines that run on leather belts.  The same type used to make this antique beveled glass lens originally.  The fitting of the antique replacement beveled glass in the bezel  is very tricky.  The tolerances are with in thousands of an inch.  I make replacement beveled  clock glass for clock shops all over the the country  most of them in New York and LA.
