Series" Nautical Desk Clock
is an excellent example of a ca. 1890 desk clock by A. R. Guilmet, a
famed maker of novelty and mystery clocks in the late 19th
century. The elegant multi-piece, cast and machined brass case
is in the form of a ship’s wheel that appears to float above an
old-style Stock anchor.
The case is attached to a polished slate base and is accented
by crossed cannons with cannon balls at its base. The whole is
surrounded by a beautifully shaped twisted brass cable that simulates
a ship's rigging.
unsigned dial is engraved and retains its original silver-plated
The blued steel hands are original.
