20thC French Art Deco, Judaica timepiece, shaped as the star of David, supported by a hinged strut, the star panels set with translucent agate panels, the gilded silver mounts applied with vibrant blue guilloche enamel on engine turned ground. Hallmarked with a small French silver guarantee mark (boars head), clock face signed Cartier, Paris, Londres, the clock dates to the 1920's. This is a stunning example of the early Art Deco pieces made by Cartier and such pieces were undoubtedly made on commission and marked the high point of the first phase of Art Deco.
