A stylish Art Nouveau garniture set of a striking clock with two elegant candlesticks, by WMF, Germany dating from the first part of the 20th century.

The bright mirror-finished case has been newly nickel-plated, and has parallel vertical beveled-edge glazed panels to the front of the clock, allowing the pendulum to glint through.

It also has one glass panel on each candlestick.

WMF has an unbeatable reputation as a pioneer in silver plate production of Art Nouveau items. Indeed, this set was originally silver plated. Alongside WMF's factory mark on the base are other marks ;

I/O - normal silver coating which is equivalent to 1 gram of silver per 1 dm2 of base metal surface, and
OX - oxidized finish. These marks were in use from around 1900 until about 1918.
Nickel-plating is more durable and does not tarnish, and so is more practical.

WMF is the abbreviation for Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik, which means Württemberg Metal Factory and was created in 1880 in the small town of Geislingen on the river Steige (Geislingen an der Steige), after the successful merger of two smaller silver plate foundries. This company is still active nowadays.

The 8-day clock movement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a bell.

In excellent condition. Overhauled and guaranteed for 3 years.
