Lady & Deer Clock Set
A beautiful French spelter and ivorene clock set, unsigned but attributed to Menneville. It is composed of Belgian Black marble, Rosso Red marble and green onyx and has typical deco circle shapes combined with the rectangular clock enclosure. The lady is spelter and ivorene and is wearing a typical Menneville cloche hat and long dress and is feeding deer which is sitting on a piece of onyx. The clock face is crisp and clean with the inscription 'Valery, Limoges' and is working well. The clock is complimented by a pair of spelter urn shaped side pieces, also typical of Menneville, but these ones are smaller and a slightly unusual shape, but having bases which echo the main clock base having onyx and red and black intersections. Condition: Various and numerous nibbles to the marble edges and the lady is unfortunately missing a couple of fingers (please email me for close-up pics), otherwise condition is very good. Size: 26 inches long, 11 inches high, 6 inches deep. side pieces: 4.5 by 4.5 by 9 inches tall.

The Charioteer by Odyv
French ceramic clock signed under the base ODYV, it comes with a pair of matching side pieces. It measures 18 inches long by 4 deep by 11 high (46cm x 10 x 28). The clock is currently fitted with a quartz movement and therefore keeps good time with no need to wind it every few days. Condition is very good with the usual loss to some of the silvering, this is quite common due to age.

'Eternal Story' by Chiparus
Rare large art deco clock set by Demetre Chiparus. Its title is Eternal Story and it is rare as a statue but I have never seen it before as a clock. It is unsigned although the clock face has a title of Gallice and Toulon. Cold painted spelter and ivorine. The clock measures a huge 28 inches long by 8.5 inches deep by 21 inches high (71cm x 22cm x 53cm) and the side pieces are also large and measure 7.5 inches wide by 5 inches deep by 9 inches high (19cm x 12.5cm x 23cm). We have had the clock working so the movement is good but please note we do not guarantee clocks. Condition is very good with just a few tiny edge nibbles to the marble as one would expect due to its age. A very rare find indeed.
