Studio Laurana Rame D’ Arte enamelled copper wall clock, made in Italy circa 1960’s

This is a Beautiful Studio Laurana Rame D’ Arte enamelled copper wall clock, made in Italy circa 1960’s.

A Fantastic design from this ‘copper art’ studio founded by Franco Bastianelli in Pesaro, Italy in 1958.

Stunning Italian modernist / brutalist style very reminiscent of the work of Curtis Jere and Marcello Fantoni during the mid century era.

The clock face is made of copper, with indentations and holes roughly hewn around the rim, embellished with shimmering fiery multicoloured enamelled glazes. In the middle are raised glassy droplets to roughly mark the time.

Would make a prefect addition for any mid century, modernist, brutalist, 1950’s, 1960’s, vintage, retro or contemporary interior as a practical piece of wall art!

In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches, a little kink in the secondhand, nothing to detract on display. In fully working order, takes one size C. 1.5V battery not included.

Measures 25 x 25 x 5cm / 10 x 10 x 2in.

Hand signed to the back with the artists name (indistinct).
