The ethos of the Arts & Crafts movement was:-"Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together"....nailed it.
This wonderful antique clock looks absolutely stunning in any setting. From its plannished finish, through the industrial "riveted" seaming, and the beautifully stylish design, it has it all. The antique brass has that warm, worn colour that new brass just can't match. With its sleek lines and demure size it will sit beautifully in either a modern or more period setting. Added to its fabulous looks, the bevelled glass front panel allows sight of the pendulum as it works away, adding movement to an already eye-catching piece.
Inside beats the key wound, eight day, pendulum movement. This bares the renowned "crossed arrows" maker's mark of the Hamburg American Clock Company, who were in business from the mid 1800s, through to the 1930s. Despite their name, this company hails from Germany. The clock is in full working order, keeping very good time.
The clock comes with a wonderful pair of candle sticks, which did not start life with the clock, but are certainly in keeping with the style. These stylish candle sticks are of solid brass with delightful coloured glass "cabochons" dotted around the base and top.
The clock stands 12 inches high, 7 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches deep. The candle sticks stand on a base of 4 inches in diameter, with a height of 10 inches.
A stunning, period antique clock that oozes Arts & Crafts charm.
