All my clocks are unique, and although originally manufactured in quantities, can be considered one-off pieces. They are sourced throughout Europe, both old West and former Eastern Bloc countries.
All the clocks are fitted with high quality battery quartz or mains electric
mechanisms that are reliable, accurate and fully guaranteed for twelve months.
Apart from battery replacement and the changing of the time,
they are virtually maintenance free. They can be sited in most locations around
the house, but avoid extreme locations such as steamy bathrooms, and remember
that direct sunlight will have an adverse effect on all coloured surfaces.
Because all the clocks are used, none of them will be in new condition. Therefore, I describe all clocks by highlighting their good points as well as any defects or faults.
All dimensions are given in metric to the nearest 5mm.
Unless stated otherwise, the precise provenance of my collection is unknown, therefore dates, styles and descriptions are based on my knowledge and expertise, but are not guaranteed. Antique clocks should be over 100 years old. Mine are all mid-20th century so the word antiques is not relevant.
I am a professionally trained restorer. I have been providing customers with period restored clocks with replaced mechanisms, giving the authentic style with worry-free reliability for 30 years. Every clock that I sell is restored by me, and I take pride in selling clocks with a high standard of finish.
All clocks are hand-restored using traditional methods. Each clock I acquire differs depending upon the severity of the neglect it has suffered. I personally restore each clock to ensure that it is back to its former beauty whilst retaining the individual character it has acquired over time.
