Homes and Antiques Magazine - - ASK AN EX­PERT - WORDS JANET GLEESON

As well as be­ing highly dec­o­ra­tive fur­nish­ing items, long­case clocks are also com­plex ma­chines with many mov­ing parts, and it is al­ways prefer­able if they are in good work­ing or­der. Fol­low­ing proper in­stal­la­tion, look­ing a er them well can en­sure they func­tion ac­cu­rately and re­main look­ing their best for years to come. De­pend­ing on qual­ity, a well-made and well-main­tained clock will keep ex­tremely ac­cu­rate time – a mid-range long­case should keep time to within 30 sec­onds a week.
