This is a stylish and attractive ceramic wall clock in our unique Art Deco
inspired Manhattan design. This clock has been glazed in a combination of our
own Pairs White glaze with contrasting hand decorated highlights of black and
green which together just screams out 1920's Jazz Age and complements the
geometric design of this time piece very well.
The inspiration for this distinctive wall clock 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. Our Manhattan wall clock incorporates this idea
with its characteristic layered fan design.
