Description

A stunning Art Deco mantle clock featuring many iconic symbols of the period, including a chequered cream and green marble base supporting 2 green marble roundels, stylised and patinated spelter peacocks and a large circular 2-tone marble clock. The clock has Art Deco style numerals with inner and outer brass surrounds enveloping the clock-face and pierced brass hands. It comes with its original key. 

Condition Report

The clock is in exceptional condition for its age with only a few small nibbles to the marble base (barely visible) and with the spelter peacocks retaining a fine overall patina. The clock mechanism needs attention – upon winding, the hands rotate rapidly around the dial before coming to a stop. I believe this may be due to over-winding in the past but if you are looking to have a working timepiece rather than a purely decorative object, I would recommend that it be taken to a competent clock repairer.
