Huge Diane Clock by Uriano
A huge 27 inches (to the tip of the Ivoreen bow) high, Diane spelter figural
clock. She is standing in front of a marble and onyx sunray design wall with a
clock in it. The clock has a mechanical movement and is working. The black marble base is 27 inches long and 6.5 inches deep.
Condition is pretty good with some age wear to the patina and enamelling.

Pearlised Celluloid Clock Set
This is so unusual I'm not sure where to begin. A French clock-set made of
wood and covered in the most fantastic early celluloid veneering - in brown,
black, green and a pearlised cream, with a marquetry style. As if this is not
enough, it is accompanied by a spelter figural scene with a lady, bird and
dogs. I cannot find a signature but it shows all the signs of being by SEGA.
The clock measures approx. 23 inches long, and 10 inches to the top arch of
the clock, whilst the lady stands about 13 inches high (to the tip of the
birds wing). The dogs have a golden patina and the lady is a silvery-grey
with a tint of blue to her dress (typical of Sega). To accompany this
wonderful clock are two amazing garnitures of octagonal shape - again with
the pearlised celluloid. Note the zigzag detailing to the front sections of
the set. The condition is very good and it has been recently overhauled and is working well.

'Autumn' Bronze Clock set by Charny
Lovely French bronze and rosso and black marble clock set with silvered bronze nude girl, signed to the back of the girls scarf Charny. The lady, squirrel, clock face, squirrel panels to each end of the clock and the panels on the garnitures are all of bronze - the clock face being a particularly lovely example of deco stylisation. The condition is very good but with some silvering loss to the bronze in places, especially the nude lady, where the bronze is shining through. The clock is working and apart from an old crack to the rear of one of the garnitures which looks like a fissure, the rest is very good and original. Height is 16 inches (41cm), 16.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches deep (17cm).

Bronze Egyptian Clock Set
Stunning bronze sphinx clock set, very heavy and made from cream onyx sandwiched by rosso red marble. The clock itself is suspended by the sphinx's wings and the floral bronze pendulum hangs in the void. The two sphinxes are female with wings, bobbed hairdo and breasts with lions bodies. The quality is exceptional - it even has bronze beading and feet. In addition there are a pair of stunning tazza style garnitures also adorned in bronze, each measuring 7 inches high (18cm). I cannot find a signature but it must have been a very expensive item when new and it is of obvious quality. The clock is working and condition is very good with just some minor wear to the clock face. Clock measures 23.5 inches long, 7.5 inches deep and 12 inches high (60x19x30cm).

Modernist Clock by ATO
Rare glass and bakelite clock. The glass face I believe was made by Lalique while the clock was made by Leon Hatot (ATO). Signed to the glass face ATO. It is a 1920's battery operated clock and although not currently working as the batteries are no longer made, could be converted by a clock expert to run on a modern battery. The black bakelite base measures 7.5 inches wide by 4.5 deep and the total height of the clock is 9.5 inches (19cm x 11.5 x 23.5). Inside the back bakelite cover it still retains its original parts and even its original instructions. Condition is vintage and used but very good. A rare clock by the first person to create a battery operated clock in the 1920's - see my info on artists section.
