Bakelite Art Deco Mantel Clock by JAZ

$6,775.73

About

An incredibly stylish Bakelite mantel clock by the French firm JAZ, bearing all of the elements of Classic Art Deco, the face with Modernist numerals within a chrome surround, with ‘Skyscraper’ hands and black Ruhlmannesque scalloped details to the plinth, the body in a deep burgundy-coloured glossy Bakelite. With a removable back, to enable access the clockwork mechanism with a recessed key holder and regulation adjustment. Stamped JAZ MADE IN FRANCE. Notes: Founded by a small group of French engineers in 1919, JAZ was created from an IDEA following the First World War, that there was lucrative an untapped market for well-designed and stylish alarm clocks, an essential element to getting the Industrial workforce to their places of work on time. Their first model, The Classic was released in 1921. A much more melodic alarm bell compared to other clocks on the market, the luminous-faced Classic ‘L’ that closely followed sold 10,000 models in the first year, making it a massive commercial success. In 1957, JAZ had sold its 20 millionth clock, and more than a million timepieces were made by the company each year making it the largest clock manufacturer in France.
