'Friends' by Lavroff
This stunning clock set is attributed to Lavroff. It was made in France during the 1920s and the figures and detailing are made of bronze. The lovely bronze lady lays naked looking affectionately at her dog on top of the brown marble clock. To the front of the clock is the most stunning geometric silvered bronze clock face and 2 leaping ibex motifs - in true Lavroff style. The clock is complemented with 2 matching garnitures also portraying the silvered bronze leaping Ibex. The clock measures 21 inches long, 5 inches deep and the lady is 13 inches high. The condition is very good, and it works. Please feel free to email me for more pics. George Lavroff was born Georgiu Lavrov in Siberia in 1895. He was originally an artist and he died on August the 29th 1991 at the ripe old age of 96 years!

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 garnitures, 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. Garnitures: 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 garnitures. 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.
