French Art Deco Chromed Bronze Alarm Clock & Integral Dice Paperweight Desk Set

About

This beautifully engineered French Art Deco desk set features a chrome-plated brass Bayard mechanical alarm clock mounted on a heavy chrome plated bronze base. This clock is flanked on either side by a detachable plated bronze paperweight each with a dice mounted "en pointe" that slides out for use. The piece is in brilliant condition save for some chrome loss revealing bronze to the underside of one paperweight base (obviously caused by repeated sliding). Beneath each paperweight is an etched script "PP", as can be seen in the photographs, but we do not know who that this refers to. But we do know that, whoever they were, they made a brilliant piece!
