I have restored clocks for the following institutions:

Additionally, I have restored 7 Stretch family tallcase clocks

including the two in Independence Hall and the

Dietrich American clock which is on display in the

Early American Art galleries of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

  • Thomas Wagstaff tallcase ca. 1770
    Owned by the PA Hospital &
    restored by me in 2011.

  • This is the cartouche from the
    Dietrich American Foundation's
    Peter Stretch tallcase
    with I restored recently. It is on
    display in the Early American Art
    galleries of the Phila. Museum of Art.

  • PA Hospital's Rittenhouse
    orrery/musical tallcase
    clock, which I helped setup
    at the Phila. Antiques Show.
    The Wagstaff is to my left.
