Danish Sterling Silver Art Deco Clock by Peter Hertz

This exceptional timepiece represents a stunning example of the Art Deco era, crafted by the renowned Danish silversmith Peter Hertz.  The clock showcases the unparalleled craftsmanship and distinctive style that has made Danish design a pinnacle of excellence in the world of silver.

Hand crafted from solid sterling silver, this rare clock stands as a testament to the era’s sleek and geometric aesthetics. The clock’s round shape is beautifully enhanced by clean lines and bold angles, reflecting the essence of Art Deco design. The face of the clock features an elegant silver dial, complemented by slender silver hands. The minimalistic design of the dial ensures a sleek and sophisticated look. The clock is equipped with a precise and reliable battery  movement.  Adding further allure to this rare piece is the intricate detailing along its perimeter with intricate reliefs and motifs that adorn the silver frame, effortlessly blending organic and geometric forms. These decorative elements contribute to the clock’s unique character, making it a true collector’s item.

  • Measurements:  7 1/4″ in height and 7 1/4″ across the base (18.5 cm x 18.5 cm)
  • Hallmarks:  Period 1938 Hallmarks,  P. Hertz, along with a Danish three-tower stamp marked ’38’ for the year 1938. The piece bears hallmarks in three different locations. Notably, there is an engraving on the back lower edge of the base that adds significance to the clock. The engraving reads, “Tak for gammelstrand 28 og godt samarbejde,” which translates to “Thanks for Gammelstrand 28 (a building) and great cooperation.” This clock holds special historical value as it was presented to Albert Oppenheim, the architect of the building Gammelstrand 28.
