Phaedra clock gilding with malachite
Phaedra – in ancient Greek mythology, the daughter of the Cretan king Minos and his wife Pasiphae, the second wife of the Athenian king Theseus. Excited by a passion for her stepson Hippolytus and being rejected by him, she slandered him, which led to his death, and committed suicide. The original Phaedra wrist clock will be an excellent gift for art lovers and mythology lovers.
The table mantel clock is made according to old Russian technologies of the 19th century from environmentally friendly materials: bronze, malachite. Bronze clock elements are additionally hand-chased by master artists.
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.
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.
Table clocks manufactured by the Sentiabrev manufactory are unique products in a single copy.
