I have been asked to restore a Dutch 18th C. tall case clock. Much of the fretwork in the hood is completely gone. I need some good, clear photos of similar clocks in order to recreate the fretwork patters. Any ideas? PSP
When I am looking for something from another country I use an on-line translator to find the right search words. In this case english to dutch. I then search with those words for images that look like what i am looking for.
In this case "grandfather clock" in dutch was "staande klok (groot en antiek)" . I then pasted that in the search bar and found images that I liked under "antieke staande klokken"
My wife Rian is a furniture conservator and is also Dutch and trained in the Netherlands. If you send me a picutures of the clock, I am sure we can help you out. We have conserved many 18th c Dutch clocks not the lest of which was FDR's.
