1930s clocks for sale at Vinterior

The 1930s saw a cultural shift like no other. The natural organic forms that characterised the art nouveau movement morphed into bolder, more geometric designs that encapsulated the glitz and glamour of the era. And the design of mantel clocks was touched by this newfound penchant for angles, monotone style, edgy typefaces, and form. For an adornment to your mantel that’s daring, a glorious pink onyx marble clock accompanied by cherub garnitures embraces the eccentricity of the time and can make a stunning centrepiece for your fireplace. For something a little more subtle, maybe a French bronze-hued timepiece matches your aesthetic. With over one hundred clocks to peruse, there’s sure to be something that ‘ticks’ all the boxes.

Styling your mantelpiece

A stunning 1930s mantel clock focal point is only one piece of your decor jigsaw puzzle. It’s important to dress your mantelpiece with things that you’ll enjoy looking at every day.

Different styles of mantel clock

While the geometric designs of the 1930s were popular, expert clockmakers still favoured wooden casings for more traditional bracket clocks. Bakelite was also increasingly popular and exuded a more modern look for the pre-war period. Today, bakelite is highly desirable and fits effortless into a modern home. French bronzes, marble casing, faux-roman imagery, and romantic adornments are also evocative of the period. Explore Vinterior’s stunning collection and welcome a new 1930s clock into your home that’s sure to stand the test of time.
