Here is the clock in its unrestored condition. The bottom lip of the frame of the clock is busted out and the joints of the clock are loose.
Mel and I picked this clock up in the bay area a while back. It needed a new frame constructed for the clock section because the wood was busted out. While I was in Nebraska for the last 20 days my step-father Dave (a master cabinet-maker) made a new frame out of cherry to match the rest of the clock.
Here she is restored! I think it looks great with a little sanding and some stain. The clock looks brand new!
The original planter box had old broken down foam and nasty looking plants. I replaced the artificial greenery and put small river pebbles in the planter box.
I had to replace the clock motor with one of the battery-powered ones from Michael's. I tried to make the old one work but upon further investigation it was really warm to the touch and I did not want to burn down the house.
I love the lines of this clock and think it will go great with our Moss lamps.
There is a makers tag but unfortunately some of the tag is missing so I am not sure who made this clock.
What an awesome clock! I love it. I collect MCM clocks and have never seen one quite this cool.
I appreciate it. I love it.
Very adorable. And what a nice little “welcome home” from your step-dad to have made that repair for you. (BTW – I keep forgetting to tell you that your business cards have been rapidly disappearing from my space – better watch what you wish for! ;- )
I will make sure I drop more cards off. Its great to be home.
What an amazing clock! You’d never guess you even did any work to it. Just beautiful!
Thanks, that’s what I was hoping to achieve.
that’s is GORGEOUS! truly lovely.
Thanks Dharia! I love the way it turned out.
