Mantel clock finishes "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
Greetings, does somebody know or know where to find what type of finish was put on Waterbury mantle clocks from the factory circa 1920s? I am giving my mom’s old clock some TLC and would like to spruce up the case. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Neal

There were so many styles and models, it would be difficult to answer that question. A picture of the clock would be a great help.

Hey Dave thanks for the comeback. I tried posting a picture but it said the file was too big so I will try again.

I tried posting another picture but it didn’t work this time either. Any suggestions?

Thanks Lorne, I guess because I’m not a paying member I can’t access your profile to get your email. If you care to give it out to me that would be great, if not that’s okay too. Thanks

For that case, I would use Howard's Restore-A-Finish. It is available at Home Depot and comes in several different colors. I would use the Mahogany. The advantage to Howard's is that it does not strip the clock. It takes off all the old and flaky varnish (or shellac) and restores the natural oils to the wood. You can use whatever finish after that to make it shine.
