Echo of Deco Manhattan Wall Clock
Length 24cm
The inspiration for this distinctive timepiece comes from combining the aspirant feeling of the roaring twenties with the exciting Art Deco skyline of Manhattan, New York. Due to the limited space available and booming economy higher and higher 'skyscrapers' were being built in New York during the first years of the 20th Century. These tall structures were of such a size and proximity that they blocked out the daylight reaching the streets below, reducing the general quality of life for the cities inhabitants. In 1916 a zoning law was passed in certain districts, which restricted a buildings height to its plot size. As a result the high rise skyscrapers built during the 1920's and 30's were creatively designed to be stepped back in accordance with the new law. This is the reason the city of Manhattan has its distinctive Architecture and iconic Art Deco skyline. This piece has been finished in Echo Of Deco's own 'Turquoise Crackle' glaze, but is also available in many of the studio's other unique glaze colours.
