About

This very stylish English Art Deco combination 8-day desk clock and barometer is by Smiths. It features a stepped chrome base with three triangular supports that hold an oblong backplate of tortoiseshell Bakelite. This is pierced to hold a mechanical clock and a barometer each with a chrome bezel. The chrome plating on this desk combination, both front and back is in good vintage condition and shows only light signs of age and the Bakelite is near mint. The back of the chrome clock case is impressed with the 'Smiths' wordmark and both the clock and the barometer are working well.
