About

Art Deco clock of finely grained rose pink and white alabaster and marble, with an open face in mother-of-pearl with red stained Arabic nouveau numerals. The clock is adorned to the left, a man playing pans pipes, and to the right, a maiden captured by the music, listening; both figures are gilt covered. The clock face is marked above the 6, “bordeaux”; and has both time and chime winding keyholes, and also a “fine tuning” spindle above the 12 point. There are remnants of the clockmaker’s name are below the 12, but nearly totally “rubbed” and not discernible. The internal, bronze workings to the rear numbered “6792” (bell and pendulum removed for clarity, but are included with the clock). To the base, the clock is mounted on six knurled bronze, squat barrel feet. The face is surrounded in pink veined white alabaster, and the top capped in the wine red, white veined marble. Dimensions are approximately: Overall, 60cm wide x 29.5cm high x 14cm deep; the bronze frame surrounding the face, is 11cm wide x 18.5cm high. The mechanism has been cleaned and timed, but for a clock of this age, accuracy varies with any movement or relocation, France, circa 1910.
