I'm currently working on my grandparents old clockSmall mahogany eight-day clock by Sessions. I'm not sure how old it is--1910s or 1920s maybe.
The finish is roached--I'll have to clean it first which should lighten it a lot, and then French-polish it with shellac & mild abrasives. Also the right-hand side of the case is falling off. Fun little wood-working project; I think I can make it look like it's actually been cared for.
It doesn't need batteries, which is nice--but I have to get a key to crank it up with and then I think I can get it going from there.
The small, well-made wooden case & the intricate Maltese-cross and trident designs on the hands really appealed to me. You can't get a Walmart clock that looks good like this. Might take a bit to get it going again but I think I can sweet-talk it back into life, just like with most antiques. It's almost like they want to run.
