Abstract: In 2004, Winterthur Museum stunned the art world when it bought a 1746 Philadelphia tall clock with works by Peter Stretch at Sotheby's auction house for a record-breaking price. The purpose of the study of the clock's finish was two-fold: to provide physical evidence informing the art historical research, and to determine possible treatment approaches for the finish. To gain information regarding the surface's composition and history, a variety of analyses were performed, including ultraviolet light examination, cross-section microscopy, Fourier-Transform infrared spectroscopy, x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, and gas chromatograph-mass spectrometry.
