An empire style 1930s table clock with strong fascist aesthetic influences - made in Germany, in Empire style. Made in metal with a brass clock.
The item dates back to the 1930s and shows strong fascist influences, which had begun to emerge in those years. This can be deduced from the sobriety of the lines and the presence of an equestrian statue recalling the Roman Empire, to which the fascist ideal referred.
Another particular feature of the clock are the four very fine metal columns, which once again recall the Roman Empire.
A wonderful table clock from Germany up for auction.
The sculpture depicts a Roman soldier intent on taming his horse. As you can see from the photos, the sculpture was made by hand and has very accurate details.
The hand-crafted clock bears the ‘Record’ brand, one of the most famous German companies of the time, it is made in brass and copper.
The clock is completely original and functional but must be overhauled considering its age.
Its peculiar style is called ‘Empire style’.
An excellent piece for collectors and genre enthusiasts.
The term "Third Reich" intended to describe Nazi Germany as the historical successor of the medieval Holy Roman Empire (962-1806) founded by Otto I of Saxony, and of the modern German Empire (1871-1918), founded by Kaiser Wilhelm I. The official names were Deutsches Reich (in use since 1871) from 1933 to 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich ("Great German Reich") from 1943 to 1945, but also Tausendjähriges Reich ("Millennial State") to allude to eschatological concepts . On January 30, 1933 Hitler was appointed chancellor of the Reich and, despite initially being head of a coalition government, he quickly got rid of the allied parties; within a year, he centralized both executive and legislative power in the government and in himself, completely divesting the Reichstag and laying the foundations for a far-right totalitarian government with strong nationalistic, militaristic, anti-Semitic features and highly aggressive connotations in foreign policy.
