L'Etoile by Van de Voorde
A large and very impressive spelter clock set made in France by Salon des
Artistes Francais - with a makers stamp. A bronzed lady and man sit holding a
lozenge shaped clock by fruit garlands on their shoulders. The clock is of
good quality having an enamel face, the movement is stamped Oury Frebes
with a crown stamp and the pendulum is star shaped. There is a plaque on the
front which reads ' L'Etoile, Salon des Artistes Francais, Van de Voorde'.
The clock base is made of Portorro mable and measures a large 26 inches long
by 6 inches deep and the clock is 15 inches high. The stepped area on which
the figures are seated has a shooting star detail to the front and back and
the man has a set of musical pipes at his feet. It is in good working order
and good condition with the expected few very minor marble nicks. The set is
complemented by two lovely stylised floral urn garnitures with golden
internal cup sections. I am happy to provide more pics if required.

Mad Fishy Clock
This is an amazing clock - I have never seen another like it. French spelter fishes with blue-green patina swimming past the most amazing blue onyx clock with wave detail to the front panel. The clock measures a large 21.5 inches long and 15 inches high and 6 inches deep (54x38x15cm). Condition is very good but it does have two old cracks to the surface of the onyx top of the base and one crack runs over the edge onto the facing base panel and dissapears behind a wave. It is all quite sound and solid and otherwise very good. Email me for close-ups. A rare and whacky find.
