Working on a full case and movement restoration that so deserves to be brought back to life Sunday, Aug 4 2013 

The most sweet silk suspension, time only French Empire mantle clock (unsigned) that has been through every war since 1810 and survived . . . the dial is distressed but that will be on the way to Marnie Myall in Melbourne, tomorrow. These small petite hands hold further clues as does the pair of gilded lions that have been partially covered by a mahogany slab case.  All reinstated after an overall clean and rub-up, no glass in bezel though _ dial gone to Melbourne for an acrylic fix.

This lovely antique brooch is lonely no more, earrings designed and made to match Sunday, Aug 4 2013

mal E returned home safe today from two weeks work on our shop and residence at Tunbridge, Tasmania Friday, Aug 2 2013 

Our American friend and master carpenter, Kim Vagt and mal E powered on for 10 days straight – achieving great pressured results upstairs and downstairs. We prepared the ground and briefed Greg Edwards to create a replacement Georgian internal staircase to the exact proportions, to be repositioned exactly where the original one stood. We also contacted our original sparky to visit and plan the final stages of electrical installations to the building. A wide pano of the shop room has been uploaded to malE’s viewersite on Tumblr and can be downloaded – here.
