A rare ‘Atmos’ Pendule Perpetuelle clock has sold for double its estimate in the most recent Clocks, Scientific & Musical Instruments Auction. Estimated at £1,500–2,000, the clock is an earlier example of an Atmos prior to the later Jaegar-Le Coultre days.
Manufactured c.1930s, the clock displays a stylish Art Deco appearance with a silvered face, baton numerals and a square-form mahogany veneered case. After fierce competition, the clock sold to a German internet bidder for £3,000 based in Munich.
The Works of Art, Medals, Militaria & Furniture Auction takes places every six weeks. Entries are invited for the next auction, taking place on 23rd November. Come along to the Valuation Days at McTear’s on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week for complimentary auction advice.
