Today I'm loving...

This vintage mid-century looking clock. I have no idea who designed this piece (althought to me it looks a bit like Parzinger's style), so if anyone out there has any leads I'd love to know where to track one down!

I'm guessing, but I think it's a repro Art Deco style, or possibly earlier, Art Nouveau, in the Charles Rennie Mackintosh genre, (Glasgow school). In your previous post the mention of rents going up 20% I well remember, living in HK. Happily property isn't so crazy here in Bangkok and you get more space for your baht.

Hi Columnist! Thanks for dropping by and giving some clues as to the history of that gorgeous clock. You have a great blog too - and a great looking portfolio!

actually, my friend and fellow ebay seller, swellpad, sold one a while back (not to me, darnit!). when you see it in higher resolution, it's very danish modern in it's styling (teak and brushed brass) so i'm guessing scandinavian late 50's-early sixties. it wasn't marked anywhere, so it's just a guess.

it's quite magnificent, whomever designed it- it's tall and opens to storage! i had my friend title his auction "parzinger meets juhl obelisk clock", so i'm with you on the parzinger-esque quality, suzy!

love, love, LOVE it!
