German Art Deco Tortoiseshell Bakelite and Lucite Mechanical Mantel Clock

$775

About

This stylish German Art Deco, key-wind, mechanical mantel clock features a body of translucent tortoiseshell Lucite. This is supported by blocks of opaque tortoise shell Bakelite and mounted to an oblong base of translucent tortoiseshell Lucite. Both the Bakelite and Lucite are in excellent unblemished condition. The bezel is in its original chrome and has two areas of plating loss that are clearly seen in the accompanying photographs. It surrounds a convex clear Lucite crystal pierced with a hole for the key and the numerals are on a stylized ring of ivory painted Baketite. The signed Emes mechanical movement is housed in a metal case that has been painted in a faux marble enamel and the Art Deco styled hands are brass. This clock displays beautifully and comes with its original key.
