A 1930s art deco clock of Belgian black marble and Brazilian green onyx. The face of the clock has the usual ATO silvered spiders web patterning and art deco numerals. To the front of the clock is a presentation plaque that reads – Les Sportifs Nimois (Nimes), A Henri Reynard.
Presented to Henri Reynard – possibly the art deco period artist who worked in Nimes – by the Sportsmen of Nimois – the district of Nimes.
This is an early battery operated clock for which Leon Hatot (ATO) was famous.
It measures 15 inches (38cm) wide, 17.5 inches (44.5cm) high and 6 inches (15cm) deep.
Condition is very good with just a few expected small corner edge nicks to the marble base.
Solid marble and onyx and hence quite heavy.
Currently not working although I believe it can be made to work or converted to a modern quartz movement.
