For the restoration, I removed as much hardware as I could to get as much access to the finish as possible. I first cleaned the clock with some all purpose cleaner, just to get the big stuff off. Then, I used some extremely high quality english furniture wax to polish the clock. Using a regular shop towel, I polished the entire surface of the clock working one section at a time. On each section, after applying the polish in a circular motion, I let the polish sit for about one to two minutes to allow the polish to set, and then i buffed it off with a microfiber. I washed all the extra hardware pieces, which included the legs and side handles. I chose not to wash the pillars after taking them after finding they were made out of wood. After that, I used steel wool to polish up the brass on the clock face, and then I reassembled the hardware. After a quick final buff, and a blow with the air compressor, the restoration was completed.
Mystery: still continuing the mystery from earlier!
What year and hopefully month was the clock made?
And, what is the value of the clock?
Thanks for looking!!
