Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
Have purchases an old oal longcase grandfather clock (brass faces)
1. the case is old and appears to have been both lacquerd and poloshed, also a lot of black dirt on sides which i feel means it has been in a smoke/tobacco environement fot many yers.
2 the brass face appears very old at
lthough in good condotion other than having beed cleaned over a number of years there is a build up of hardened yellow residues in both tje decoration and number.
how do i approach these problems to sympathetically bring bacl to lfe.
As far as the wood I would use mineral spirits. and gently clean. do not use laquer thinners it will remove the finish. after you are satisfied with the cleaning you can use old english to give it a new looking finish. old english takes time to dry sometimes a couple of hours.
