Joseph Kent 
of Ratcliff London 

This 12 bell musical clock dial had been quite badly over painted at some time in the past. 
You will note the paint missing around the 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock positions, this damage is quite common but easily repairable




J. Russell  of Falkirk

Note the makers name and area along with the subsidiary dials were very faint.
This is quite a common problem. The customer instructed us to restore the dial before the details were lost to history. The photograph of the restored dial was taken before the hands were blued.

        Note the missing colours in 
        the before photo and the  
        sympathetically restored 
        artwork of a typical Scottish 
        dial in the photo after the   
        restoration.
