Clocks Page 1

IMPORTANT NOTE - We buy clocks for their physical appearance rather than if they work, and the presence of a nice figure on top helps. However, when purchasing clocks we do try to ascertain whether a clock is in working condition or not - which is not always easy to do on the spot, and we will pass on to its new owners the accompanying bell, pendulum and key. Consequently, we can never guarantee that a clock is working, or that it will continue to work after sale, (the original guarantee probably ran out 80 years ago). We are unable to test movements and consequently we can only indicate whether we have had a clock working for a short test. It is possible that the mechanism has been replaced sometime in the clock's life, it is possible that the original pendulum, bell or key have been lost and replaced, it is also possible that we will not be able to supply a pendulum, bell or key which fits correctly, especially as some clocks have to be purchased without its components. As a consequence when buying a clock from Sheryl's Art Deco Emporium, please feel free to ask us if it is working. We will try to give an honest opinion of the condition of a clocks workings, but we are not clock experts and NO GUARANTEE IS GIVEN. This type of clock movement has been in production for a long time and are well known to be very robust. Generally speaking if a clock has not suffered any broken parts (rare), and that we are able to get it running for a short time, it may be possible to get it running with just a simple clean and service. We unfortunately cannot perform this service, but there are plenty of clock repairers who can. Alternatively, if a clock movement is beyond repair, it is possible to have a clock movement replaced with a battery run quartz movement, which means a beautiful art deco clock will be able to keep time perfectly without having to wind it up.

Oriental Clock Set by Orchies
French art deco 1930s ceramic clock three part garniture set by Orchies. This is an extremely rare set and you normally only find the clock without the side pieces. The set is of Museum quality and shows 4 oriental figures two men holding the clock up and 2 ladies one on each of the vase side pieces. The ladies are sitting holding trays. In typical Orchies crackle glaze with hand painted decoration in turquoise, navy gold and black giving it a screaming deco look. All 3 pieces are marked with Orchies mark and signed and the clock is in working order. The clock itself measures 9 inches wide by 4.75 inches deep by 15 inches high (23cm x 12cm x 38cm). The side pieces each measure 5 inches wide by 6.5 inches deep by 12 inches high (12.5cm x 16.5cm x 30). The clock on its own from this set can be viewed in the Les Craqueles Book on page 271. In excellent original condition with no damage or repairs.

Diane and Wolf by De La Tour
A French spelter clock set by Kate De La Tour, of a lady wearing a maroon, gold and black dress and accompanied by a spelter wolf. It comes with 2 matching side pieces. The clock is a mixture of brown, cream and green onyx and the lady figure is gilt spelter. The clock face is a bit grubby and there is slight wear to the patina on the lady as one would expect. She has her original red and black dinanderie patterning to her dress and scarf. The clock measures 21 inches (53.5cm) high, 25 inches (63.5cm) wide and 7 inches (17.5cm) deep. The side pieces measure 4.75 inches (11.5cm) wide, 10 inches (25.5cm) high and 4 inches (10cm) deep. The clock is in working condition.

Fabulous phenolic clack in the form of a stylised cubist elephant balancing a ball on his trunk. It has an 8 day movement and it measures 10 inches by 2.5 by 7 high (25cm x 16.5 x 19).

Chasseresse - Bronze Clock by Lavroff
French Art Deco Diane the Huntress clock set. This one is unusual as the side pieces have adaptions to make them table lamps. Whether this was a factory option I do not know but they are telescopic pieces whereby it is possible to extend or reduce the height of the lamps. The lady is silvered bronze and signed Lavroff to the sole of her foot. The clock face and the leaping deer panels to both the side lamps and the front of the clock, are also silvered bronze. The lamps have a double bulb holder to each but I do not have any shades for them and leave that to the purchaser. The clock measures 20 inches wide by 9.5 inches high by 4.5 inches deep (51cm x 24cm x 11.5cm). The side pieces measure 4.75 inches (12cm) wide, 6.5 inches (17cm) high without the lamps (which are removable), up to 17 inches (44cm) high (adjustable) with the lamp fittings and 3 inches (8cm) deep. The marble sunray clock case detail is in Sienna, Rosso and Portorro marble. Condition is very good with a few tiny age related marks as one would expect. Each lamp has a twin bulb holder with a large bayonet fittings.
