What is nice is the fact that this delightful clock hasn't been over cleaned or over polished, totally unspoilt, which over the years has created a beautiful age related patination !!
Around the turn of the late 19th century they specialised in ornate boxes, napkin rings and decorative travelling, mantle and table clocks for top end retailers like Harrods and Liberty & Co. Their decorative clocks are now commanding very strong prices, basically because of the exquisite workmanship associated, with these delightfully stylish, Victorian time pieces.
This is as good as it gets with regards to interesting Art Nouveau silver clocks. How many of these have you seen, an extremely rare find indeed. I've only got one, once it's gone .... it's gone, and if there's one thing I've learned about antiques, when items are of quality and extremely rare he who hesitates, usually loses out.
This rare silver travelling/desk clock is so highly collectable, and would add value to any silver collection. A stylish time piece that has stunning detailed decoration. A real must for any serious Arts and Crafts collector. Rare, Art Nouveau silver items, have become extremely collectable and are really appreciating in value.
