German Art Deco Chrome and Butterscotch Marbled Bakelite Electric Desk Clock

$850

About

This strongly designed German Art Deco electric desk clock is brilliant in its simplicity. It features a stepped chrome base, chrome bezel and two chrome pillars flanking this bezel. The clock motor housing is totally chrome plated and it is surrounded by an oblong panel of butterscotch marbled Bakelite. The two tone geometrically divided dial together with its ivory colored backing ring to the chrome numerals are all in excellent condition. The clock is marked to the dial with the word Foreign indicating that it was manufactured in Germany between the wars for export. The rear of the housing is stamped D.R.G.M. ( Deutsches Reichsgebrauchmuster) certifying that the design was centrally registered for all the German states and above this are stamped the electrical specifications. The clock is in brilliant condition with only minor surface signs of use.
