Tortoiseshell and silver dome topped carriage or mantel clock.

A good silver and tortoiseshell mantel clock in the modernist style. Super quality and in outstanding condition this unusual carriage clock appears to bridge the gap between the Edwardian style and that of the Modernist movement. The tortoiseshell covers all four elevations while dome topped carriage clocks ten years earlier would have had a silver back door, the feet are plainer and the elegant silver handle would never have been seen on an Edwardian tortoiseshell carriage clock. Simple circular dial of white enamel on copper with blued steel hands. Good quality 8 day timepiece movement with lever escapement. Hallmarked for Birmingham England for 1922. 6.5 inches high by 3.25 inches wide by 2.625 inches deep ( ( 15 cms by 8.125 cms by 6.56 cms).
