Our museum's Conservator, noted antique clock restorer R. J. Renaud, sympathetically restores fine antique clocks for private customers in his uniquely equipped period workshop in the museum.
A member clockmaker of the British Watch & Clockmakers Guild, Mr. Renaud accepts private commissions for the conservative restoration of fine English longcase clocks, dial clocks, and bracket clocks through his Old English Clock Workshop. He employs only traditional methods and materials. Methodical and time consuming by nature, the horological restoration work embodies the careful attention to detail rare today through adherence to virtually unchanged ways unique to the craft.
He offers personal attention, including a visit to your home to assess your clock and provide a written estimate. Within reasonable distances, all clocks can be delivered and set up personally by the clockmaker.
At this time (July 2013) Mr. Renaud is not accepting new customers until early in 2014.
If you have any clock questions, please contact Allan Symons, the museum's Manager, by telephone at 613-584-9687 (leave a message after hours) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
