Sensational 1930s German Art Deco Peach Glass Clock ‘Windsor’ pattern by Walther & Sohne. Working & Mint.

Of all German Art Deco press moulded glass factories, NONE can quite compare to the fabulous designs which were produced by Walther & Sohne, in terms of affordability paired with undeniable quality.

You only need to look for example, at some of my other currently listed items by this factory, to be able to justify Walther & Sohne, as inarguably second to none using press moulded glass techniques of the period. This by no means undermines German competitors of the period such as Brockwitz for example however Walther & Sohne are very much indeed in a league of their own.

Their complete understanding of glass as a working medium is almost without parallel, and Walther's total commitment to produce items of breath taking beauty also makes this factory a major force which has become recognised throughout the world as being one of the most coveted of any German Art Deco glass, which was ever produced.

HERE, for your appraisal is a wonderful Walther glass clock... It is the Windsor pattern and was introduced by the factory circa 1934 and what fabulous item this truly is. It heralds & mimics, the very same vase pattern of its same name, by using a pair of amazingly stylized Art Deco flapper girls as its featuring decorative element of design.

This clock is more than just a piece of Art Deco press moulded glass... It is a Work of Art and one of which has no parallel, in terms of moulded glass figurative female beauty.

The factual `designer' of this piece is unknown, however I am sure that you will agree that whoever it was, knew their craft inside & out and had this piece been designed TODAY, then surely, he or she would win more than just a few lines of credit! This is a `Gold Winning' medal of a piece and its appeal is both awe-inspiring & timeless.

Once again, Walther used the very medium of glass itself to provide this piece with its beauty. They were a factory which would never compromise to achieve glass which produced its absolute best, visual appeal. This clock could have been by far easier to produce as one solid piece of glass... but not by Walther. They combined the hollowness of its base, with the solidity of all other areas of this piece for good reason... Refraction of light, so as to provide & to present the glass in its entirety at its very best.

Far easier too, would have been to produce this piece as either completely transparent or completely matt-satin frosted... But not for Walther, as once again they went way on beyond so to provide each decorative element to its best advantage and without compromise.

An even FURTHER and almost unique feature of these `Windsor' pattern clocks, is the evident use of two different colour-shade of glass, which is seldom seen upon any press moulded glass of this period. The clock casement is noticeably a darker shade of same colour glass than that of the remainder, and so two glass combinations were used to produce these incredible items, and their combined placement is seamless, in as much that these clocks were produced in one piece and not joined together as separate components... Technically, this is a remarkable working achievement using press moulded glass, by any standards.

A pair of vases were also produced by Walther, which if wished or desired by the customer, could be purchased so as to form a three piece garniture set for this clock, or as vases that were available as separates or in pairs, but this clock is by no means incomplete without them. These vases, were also very modest in terms of their design and no-where as sublime as the 'Windsor' pattern vase-types, or this clock.

In collective terms, most, if not ALL glass clocks produced by any factory or maker are desired objects for the glass alone. Glass works, DID NOT produce clock moments too, and all were added by to by either the end user, the distributor or the various department stores which sold these incredible items. This piece alone, without its clock movement, would still remain a very desirable item indeed, however it will come as very welcomed additional asset for you to learn that THIS example has a clock movement which is not only present, but also retains precise working time...

Fully working and function-able for over EIGHTY PLUS YEARS, this in itself is quite something! I do not interfere with vintage items and as can be seen, the front glass of the clock needs cleaning. The hand-winder on the reverse of the clock needs replacing. I turn it using tweezers!

There are no CHIPS to the glass. No flea-bites, nicks scratches or cracks and not even any bruising or age related wear to the base of this piece, and so it is as fresh as the moment that it was produced by Walther & Sohne... circa 1937 as featured in their original pattern books of the period.

Please appreciate and understand, that this clock was as luxurious as an item back then, as it is still is today, and as such this piece reflects its offer price, which year after year continues to grow in terms of its return of investment, and seldom will you find another outside of private collections in THIS condition, with its clock in full working order and in any glass colour or shade.

Do not allow opportunity to pass you by. This is as good as it gets for a `Windsor' pattern clock at this current Sale Price for your collection.

Height: 7 inches Base length x width: 6 x 2.75 inches Clock face diameter: 2.25 inches Postage weight: 2k

SHIPMENT NOTE: For obvious reasons of safety, this clock cannot be dispatched whilst ticking in a box! I kindly ask that you allow the time for the clock to stop ticking before it can be shipped to any destination. I shall stop winding the clock following your purchase order & payment clearance. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
