Malachite mantel clock Lyra
The mantel clock is made according to old Russian technologies of the 19th century from environmentally friendly materials: bronze, malachite. Small bronze elements of the clock – decorative ornament, veins, twigs, leaves – are minted by hand.
In the manufacture of clockes, colossal manual labor is used to ensure that these products have the most textured pattern, similar to the natural one. The artist needs to repeat nature in a static material – bronze. After minting and processing, the bronze elements are covered with natural 24 carat gold.
Mantel clock made of malachite “Lyra” is decorated with artistic bronze casting, which is in perfect harmony with the stone, emphasizing the nobility of design.
Each stone has its own unique characteristic. The pattern of the stone is selected by the master so that the lines of the pattern smoothly pass from one to the other, creating the effect of a single stone. Each clock made is unique and may differ from the photographs presented on the site.
The clock case is made of natural semi-precious stone malachite.
Clocks made in the technique of Russian mosaic are exhibited in many museums around the world as unique exhibits. The clock uses Hermle spring mechanisms with a classic beat or a melody that can be turned off. 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 harmonious proportions of the clockes and impeccable workmanship give this piece a special sophistication.
