Here is a clock restoration project for Roger in Missouri. What you
see below was sent to me with many cracks in the frame, some
broken pieces, and two missing pieces. The main missing piece was
a running deer. I matched the wood in mahogany, carved the
running deer based on a picture sent to me by Roger of another
clock like this one, but with the running deer in place. I copied it
as best as possible. Matching the color and patina was as difficult
as the carving.
Here's the finished deer.
Here's a missing piece that was part of the branch and adjacent acorn
Here's a close up of the running deer and you can also see the dog's nose
needed replacing
Here's a bird's wing tip and the tip of a leaf that needed replacing
The bird at the top of the frame had a broken lower beak that needed
replacing also.
