Stunning Art Nouveau Gilt and Onyx Table Clock
~*~ FLORA ~*~
ELEGANT AND GRACEFUL FIGURAL CLOCK
~ French - Circa 1910 ~
~~ Excellent condition ~~
Large and impressive piece depicting Flora in her garden. The ground where Flora stands is inscribed "Floraison" or Flowering.
Flora is beautifully modelled, full of movement, energy and grace. Her legs, feet and fingers are particularly well executed and crisply cast - have a look at the pictures below. The clock is modelled in the round so would look great in the centre of a room on a table or on one side of a room. The base is green onyx with white marble or onyx used for the stairs. The feet of the clock are modelled as floral swags.
The movement is of excellent quality and is by the famous maker S Marti et Sie. The dial is enamel on copper and is painted with floral swags of roses and forget-me-not. The movement runs for 8 days and strikes on a bell every half hour. Click here to hear the strike!
Condition is excellent - the movement is in full working order and keeping good time. The case is in excellent condition with no losses. There are a couple of minor chips to the gilt and in places it is a little worn - as you would expect with any antique item. The clock looks like it may have been re-finished sometime ago - it looks great as you can see below. There is no damage to the onyx. One winding hole grommet is missing - however this is not really noticeable.
A great find for the
collector of Art Nouveau and a very decorative addition to your home!
