Lorenzl Dancing Girl Clock
Delightful Art Deco dancing girl clock, the figure very typically Lorenzl but unsigned.
The young lady is wearing a short, flared dress, similar to an ice dancer’s outfit, which buttons all the way up the front with a neat little collar enclosing her rouched scarf at the neck. She’s showing her undergarments as she poses on one leg whilst holding aloft the clock in one hand, the other resting nonchalantly on her hip.
Although this same Lorenzl figure is occasionally seen as a lamp, this is the first time we’ve seen it as a clock.
Cold painted in strong colours of gold and red and set on a circular alabaster base.
The clock swivels 360 degrees in its mount and the movement is in working order, running for approximately a week with a full wind. It may benefit from a service however as it lost around ten minutes over the week we ran it. Having said that, we didn’t alter the speed adjustor which might well be all that’s needed.
Overall height is 46.5 cm.
