Mantle clock with two candelabra, Amstelhoek, c. 1900

h 36.3cm × w 23.2cm × d 15.0cm. More details

The design of this ensemble is sober and rational, the distinctive style of the influential Dutch architect Berlage. Connecting elements, such as rivets, are clearly visible and accentuate both the construction and the form. The broad, splayed feet resemble the base of the Eiffel Tower, completed in 1889, which was the shining example of engineering of its time.
