Care and Cleaning of the Clock Face

Do NOT clean the face of the clock....dust the face of the clock with a feather duster or better yet do not dust it at all. These clock faces were painted with alkyd type paint but the numerals and decorations were done in INDIA INK. So do NOT wash the face or spritz it with windex, however tempting or the clock numerals will instantly dissolve. Just close your glass cover and admire from the other side!
