285-French Advertising Clock
An iconic advertising clock promoting hot chocolate by the firm Revillon.
This drink was as popular as coffee is today in the bars and bistros of France in the 1930's.
They were given to the bar owners to promote their brand.
We have adapted the distinctive hands to fit a modern quartz movement because the old mechanical movements they used to have are now defunct.
59 cm tall x 45 cm wide x 8 cm deep
295-Large Enamel Turret Clock
You rarely get enamel clock dials of this size in such good condition with their original hands.
They would have been outside for many years somewhere on the top of a building, exposed to all weathers.
It is particularly nice to have the name and place in the south of France where this clock would have been.
The enamel dial is in perfect condition and would look equally good in a traditional or modern setting.
98cm wide x 12cm deep
