Great early 20th century craftmanship in the manner of Edgar Brandt.
French Art Nouveau Wrought Iron Art Clock Set, Flowery Design, from circa 1910.
Any blacksmith who is capable of creating such an elegant, stylish and even romantic work of lighting art out of such a crude and robust material as iron can truly call himself an artist and artisan. If you look at the Fine details and the elegance of the shapes of the Art Nouveau style elements then the blacksmith who made this clock set almost makes it look easy. However, anyone who has ever tried to forge anything out of a 'raw' piece of iron/steel knows it is extremely difficult and it takes a lot of talent and years of practice and dedication. They sure don't make them like this anymore.....especially not at our price.
The movement(stamped and numbered, MEDAILLE D'OR PARIS 1900 , F. MARTIN) is in a perfect working condition, with key and enamel clock face.
The powdered coloured wrought iron clock is standing on an onyx base
Condition: small onyx damage at one of the side pieces.
Maximum height: clock 13 inches x width 11.5 inches: side pieces height 8.5 inches.
