How To... Know your antique clock components

Clock expert Bob Frishman offers a quick guide on the inner workings of antique timepieces...

We regularly look at antique clock sales here at Paul Fraser Collectibles, and have seen many marvellous timepieces chime at the auction block in recent months.

Highlights include this fine and rare George III black japanned tavern clock which far exceeded its estimate at Dreweatts in February.

Crafted by Joseph Gurney in Paul Fraser Collectibles' home city of Bristol, the clock's inner workings include a five pillar rack and bell striking movement, with five-wheel trains...

But what exactly does all this mean? In this week's How To... video, expert Bob Frishman of Bell-Time Clocks gives some expert advice on identifying the inner components of an antique clock.

Bob has been collecting and repaired clocks for three decades - so he knows his stuff, making this video a must-see for collectors with a passion for beautifully crafted timepieces.
