Three-Piece Art Deco Machine Age Cobalt Mirror and Chrome Desk Set by Victor

$1,245per set

About

This sophisticated Art Deco Machine Age desk set was realized by the celebrated American maker, Victor, circa 1930. It features a inkwell/pen holder, a blotter and a clock. The inkwell offers a square body composed of translucent Lucite with a cylindrical depression in the centre intended for storing ink and a cobalt mirrored top with an orbital chrome pull on top and a trapezoid pull in front. It sits on a rectangular cobalt mirrored base with two horizontal depressions perfect for securing pens. The blotter is composed a rectangular body in cobalt mirror with a chrome top and a streamlined bottom. The clock also sits on a cobalt mirrored base with bevelled edges and skyscraper style feet in chrome. The dial reads "Victor" with machine age numbering. While this is a perfectly functional desk set- and thus an especially winning acquisition for any avid writer- it is also sure to delight any discerning collector of the period. This is a great example of the Machine Age's influence on Art Deco in America. It exhibits a wonderfully even patina throughout. The clock is in working order. Excellent vintage condition. American, circa 1930. Dimensions: Inkwell/Pen holder: 5.5" D x 7.5" W x 3.5" H Clock: 7" W x 2.5" D x 5.5" H Blotter: 6" W x 2.5" D x 3" H.
