About

This fabulously styled set of three Bakelite hand bag or purse watches were designed by Westclox designer George W. Blow together with French designer Simon DeVaulchier for the Museum of Modern Art Design Collection of 1934.The following year their design went on to win The Kaufmann Award in the 1935 Industrial Arts Exhibition at Rockefeller Center, New York. We have had examples of this great design in red Bakelite but this is the first blue example that we have offered. This design has recently been added to the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National;Design Museum Collection, New York, NY.
