French Art Deco Figurative Marbled Galalith & Chrome Racing Yacht Shelf Clock.

About

The body of this distinctive Art Deco mechanical shelf clock is made in a sea blue/green marbled form of milk based French plastic that is known as Galalith or in the UK, Erinoid. It has a very geometric face with both dome numerals and hands in chrome and is in turn mounted on a chrome plated base with curved ends. A beautifully delineated chrome silhouetted stylized racing yacht at full sail, with line etched details and crew, flanks the clock. It is in very good condition overall with only slight finish loss to the Galalith and very little age to the chrome. This is one great piece for the yachtsman/woman.
