Art Nouveau Style Gilt Brass Desk Clock with Ink Wells, retailed by Tiffany & Co., New York, ca. 1900

Art Nouveau Style Gilt Brass Desk Clock with Ink Wells, retailed by Tiffany & Co., New York, ca. 1900

Product Description:

Gilt brass desk clock in the Art Nouveau style with a central clock dial set on a shaped pedestal with floral bow above, flanked by gilt ogival handles, each with a pineapple finial above it, and a bouquet of flowers below at the base of the clock pedestal. The above rests on an undulating shaped base with both ends bowed out to encompass two inkwells, presumably one for black and one for red ink. The clock is encased in a metal canister with a circle of bas relief (at the top) with Classical figures placed decoratively on the outside. This bas relief ornament appears to indicate Aesculapius, the mythical Greco-Roman god of medicine, carrying a knotty wooden staff entwined with a snake representing life-giving powers. Gilt brass embossed dial with Roman hour chapter in white porcelain cartouche form, two winding apertures and steel French "Roman Spear" hands.

Movement is a solid round brass plate movement with both plates connected by tubular pillars and pinned at the black plate, powered by two barrel springs of eight day duration and striking a silvered bell on the hour and half hour. The back plate is marked 'Tiffany & Co. New-York'.
