This week has seen us fully overhaul and restore a stunning striking carriage clock by the maker Soldano. The faultless gilt case has an engine turned silvered dial with perfect white porcelain dial. The case is enhanced by copper gilt Corinthian columns and milled slices to the top and bottom. Soldano was commended on his cases during his life. During the overhaul, I polished the movement using an age old technique using chalk and this gives the brass a shine and colour that is only achieved using this method. Although very Labour intensive it is worth the effort! As you can see from the video.
