Nickel plated mantle clock , French circa 1965

Really good quality metal work and with curious  "eyelash" chapters that flick up .

Hour Lavigne of Paris are a bit of an unknown story. They made a series of amazing clocks in the 1920's for the master of modernist silversmithing - Jean E Puiforcat

Then nothing... design wise... until....

I have had 3 different clocks by them, of this style from the 1960's and they seem to be modelled after brutalist sculptures of the period. They are battery movement powered and I have had this one replaced as it was totally gunked up.

Size : about 10 " high
