Antique Carriage Clock Beveled Glass Replacement

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Beveled Glass, clock glass | Comments Off on Antique Carriage Clock Beveled Glass Replacement

I have made “new “old glass for hundreds of carriage clocks.  The bevels are small and come to a very sharp point on the edges .  They need to be  thin on the edge because the grove in the brass were the glass fits is very small.  I use old glass when I make replacement panels for antique clocks.  You can tell the old glass by the wavy surface and seeds (small bubbles in the glass). This glass is 100 years plus in age .  I have a stock of old ( antique )  glass I use for clocks. It helps preserve the value of the clock.

This glass is very old and perfect for making replacement beveled glass panels for antique carriage clocks and regulators.

Antique clock glass repair beveled glass in bezel

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.
