Ohhhh I love clocks!! Especially those little Art Deco table clocks, made by Cartier, Chaumet, Van Cleef and Arpels. But it where not only the famous French jewelry brands who made them. What to think about American leading jewelry company Tiffany & Co?
Albert Einstein said that ‘time is an illusion’ but this incredibly handsome Tiffany & Co desk clock in nò mirage! I found this important, French made(!) 1920’s rare Art Deco Tiffany & Co Diamond and Agate Desk Clock. A true beauty! A real treasure! This beautiful desk clock is based on an agate with rounded corners, each centring a floral diamond cluster.
The clock’s dial is beautifully made in a reflective salmon-colored guilloche enamel work, surrounded by a gold dial with white enamel rings. The dial-hands are made of diamonds in the typical manner of Tiffany & Co.
This stunning little presious Tiffany & Co. Art Deco Desk Clock is signed Tiffany & Co New York, hallmarked and french maker’s marks (ED).
People who know me, know that I have a (total) weakness for desk or table clocks! Especially those from the French jewelery houses like Boucheron, Chaumet, Van Cleef & Arpels, Mauboussin and…of cours: Cartier. Two years ago from now, there was one very nice example for aution then. A Cartier, France, Art Deco rock crystal, white enamel platinum and diamond table clock from circa 1920.

This Cartier Art Deco pendulette is made of rock crystal and platinum. The milestone-shaped rock crystal clock centering a circular silver-tone engine-turned dial, with black Roman numerals and railroad minute track, with delicate platinum rose-cut diamond-set hands, encircled by a white enamel and gold bezel, accented by two diamond-set platinum florets. The dial signed Cartier, France (case no. 01041). The round 8-day movement is signed ‘Made by Couet’, With signed fitted box.
3 1/4 x 2 11/16 x 5/16 inches.
It was estimate for $8,000-12,000 but it despite the original rock crystal easel was replaced with plexiglass, and the clock was not running, it was sold for $28,125 (includes Buyer’s Premium)! No, it’s not in my collection. It was far above my budget. But ohh so mouth watering beautiful….
