EXTREMELY RARE, EXQUISITE, COLORFUL ENAMEL DIAL MANTEL CLOCK CIRCA 1920s

Is it a clock?  A painting? Or Both?  It is a beautiful piece of TIMELESS ART !!!!    Well, this is probably one of "that" particular timepieces that make my heart sing!!!  Can you blame me???  Look at the colorful enamel dial & panels which are fully decorated with intricate details, so rich, so bright, so refined & exquisite !!!!!

Enamel clad figure decorated doors (4 panels)  that open to reveal an enamel triptych interior. The beautiful dial with very nice scenery is adorned with roman numerals & special hand sets.  Black Belgian marble base. H 6 1/2", W 3", L 7 1/4". It runs 8 days on each full wind . Chimes every half hourly & hourly & when it does, you see me smile......yes ! My heart sings !! 

No words can describe this special item accurately, so I will let the pictures do the talking (the last two pictures amplify the desire to sing louder) ........very nice !! 

These particular models of painted enamel clocks represented the best examples that could be offered at the time. Not only did the manufacturer  take the time to make sure that each of the panels were decorated on the inside, they decorated the outside panels as well. ONLY 2 OTHER EXAMPLES HAVE EVER BEEN HANDLED BY ANTIQUORUM, THAT IS HOW RARE THIS IS and may indicate that these were made either for a special exhibition or on special order only.  The second piece by Antiquorum was auctioned for HKD237,500!!!  approximately SINGAPORE$46,000 on 25 June 2011.
