Art Deco Wall Clock
There are countless reproductions available at local retailers, but don't fret - if you're after an original timepiece, scope out the antique shops, vintage auctions and eBay.
They are available, if you're willing to pay a premium. Well worth it, in my opinion.
Art Deco Wall Clock Characteristics
To help guide you on your Art Deco wall clock hunting-excursion, here are some archetypal characteristics you should keep an eye out for...
Inlaid wood was a major trend during the days of Deco and very easily expressed in clock form.
Also, look for clocks with marquetry detailing, high gloss veneer or exotic woods like ebony or mahogany.
Bold, bright colours
The classic Art Deco colours to look out for are; peacock blue, canary yellow, brilliant red, emerald green and royal purple.
Rich jewel tones or bright primaries are your best bet.
A black and white motif will do as well as it achieves a very streamlined, modern aesthetic which was popular in the 1920s and 1930s and looks just as fresh today.
Choose a clock made from steel, chrome, silver, gold or bronze.
This look is ultra-futuristic and goes well with virtually any decor.
Another major trend was the use of sharp angles and geometric patterns like zigzags, triangles and chevrons.
The round face of a clock was most conducive to the sunburst motif.
This design should be very easy to find.
