This gilt bronze Desk Clock is part of the Graduate Desk Set by Tiffany Studios.
The decoration on the Graduate Desk Set is more restrained than many of the more elaborate sets produced by Tiffany Studios with ornamental relief decoration; in Desk Sets and Useful Articles, a sales catalogue distributed by Tiffany Studios around 1910, the company noted that the Graduate set was distinguished from their other designs by the “simplicity of line and decoration” and the use of inset enamel in “soft color tones.”
While several Desk Set lines produced by Tiffany Studios offered two size options for Clocks, the Graduate Desk Set offered just one: this model which was listed as “Clock, Flat” in their catalogues.
This example of the Graduate Desk Clock features a clock face marked Tiffany Studios New York. It is notable for the richness of the soft blue enamel which is accented by the original git patina.
