Charoite clock Butterflies silvering
The interior table clock is made according to old Russian technologies of the 19th century from natural materials: bronze, charoite. Small bronze elements of the clock – decorative ornament, veins, twigs, leaves – are minted by hand.
Colossal manual labor is used in the manufacture of clockes. The artist needs to repeat nature in a static material – bronze. After embossing and processing, the bronze elements are covered with natural silver.
Each stone has its own structure. The pattern of the stone is selected by the master in such a way that the lines of the pattern smoothly pass from one to the other, creating the effect of a single stone. Each clock made is individual and may differ from the photos presented on the site.
The clock case is made of natural charoite material.
The items displayed in the Hermitage are made using the Russian mosaic technique. The clock uses classic reliable Citizen movements. During manufacture, manual assembly is used, which allows the clock to be disassembled, cleaned and, if necessary, reassembled. All models are subject to repair.
The combination of stone and bronze gives Sentyabrev’s models a special artistry and sophistication.
