I have spent two days in the shop. What an amazing place. Everywhere I look, some treasure is hiding. Here are some photos of today’s finds.
This gem was hiding under a bunch of bubble wrap in a bag in a box under more wrapping material and other boxes under a bench. This is why one should always check EVERYTHING!
These gorgeous (albeit, fragments) Lighthouse clocks were on a tray on the floor of a small cupboard. They are missing almost everything, but I am hopeful I will find the tops to their lanterns and bases somewhere in the haystack.
But look closely at the next find…………..
Ok – here is a closer look
Now do you see it?
Yes, this original document contains the signatures of many prominent horologists, and among them is Louis Breguet.
Here are some photos of the front room, which Dennis did most of his work in.
Today I accomplished my main goal of clearing out and organizing one of the smaller rooms and its contents.
These were all moved from the little room pictured above. Each drawer or every other is separate and has to be moved individually and restacked. They fit together with a pin system, but sometimes the pins don’t match from unit to unit. This can be troublesome when the stack gets too high!
Anyhow, I’m off to bed. It’s been a long day and there are many more to come. I can’t wait.
