When you think of Art Deco, your thoughts may immediately flash to images of New York City’s Chrysler and Empire State Buildings. These iconic structures are powerful tributes to this distinct design aesthetic. But nearly a century since the world was first introduced to its eclectic form of elegance, Art Deco design continues to capture the imagination with its alluring glamour and flare.
Emerging from Paris in the 1920s, the Art Deco movement had a profound impact on many areas of design throughout the 1930s and beyond, including architecture and interior design, industrial design, fashion and jewelry, graphic arts and more. Today, influences of this stylish modernism can be found in everything from broaches to bridges. And nowhere is it more evident than in the geometric shapes and brilliant finishes that define the Chelsea Clock Mayfair Clock.
The Mayfair Clock celebrates Art Deco with its bold, spherical shape, flanked by two smaller cylindrical bronze accents, all gracefully arranged atop a three-tiered stepped rectangular base. Featuring a heavy forged brass case, the Mayfair is hand crafted from solid brass and boasts a gleaming nickel-plated finish. Its dial, which is solid brass that is hand-silvered, features acid-etched, black enameled Art Deco numerals. Streamlined jet black ornamental hands finish this grand timepiece, creating a dramatic statement that is truly timeless.
For those with an affinity for the lavishness of this bygone era, but the desire for modern convenience, the Mayfair Clock offers a precision German-engineered quartz movement – ensuring accuracy with carefree maintenance. Who says glamour can’t be practical?
