Jerry Kleeb will be
giving the main presentation on the elements of a small European
clock that appears to have been made in the first half of the 18th
century. While not a carriage clock (it has a crown wheel escapement
and small pendulum) it is of similar size. Among its unique aspects
are its iron plates, its use of latches instead of tapered pins
to secure the movement and an exterior that appears to have had
a fire gilt finish.
Paul Martyn is planning
to give a beginners corner on the repair of veneer clock cases.
