Antique Glass Clock Repair Amber Pressed Glass

The clock on grandmas mantel fell and broke .  It was a basket case and I had no idea how many pieces were missing. I started the reassembly and hoped for the best.

I told the customer I would do my best but it look like there were a lot of pieces missing.

Repaired Glass Clock

 

I have repaired many types of  glass clocks most of them crystal.  This was my first antique amber glass mantel clock. I have made many kinds of custom beveled and custom bent glass for clocks.  Clock shops send the bezels to me to  install new glass.  I use old glass when necessary to maintain the value of the antique clock.

Old old clock came to me from a clock shop . It needed a beveled glass installed in the brass bezel. This is a tricky job because clock bezels are not round so the bevel is hand made to fit the out of round bezel. Its very easy to chip the new beveled glass during the installation .
