Few artisans have perfected the art of gemstone carving quite like the great Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof. Considered the artistic heir of Carl Fabergé for his outstanding workmanship and skill, Zadora is renowned for his exceptional sculptures formed from gemstones. This clock represents the heights of his artistry, combining a timepiece with semiprecious stones in a single work that celebrates the natural and mechanical worlds. Finely carved rutilated quartz forms the massive block of cheese that serves as the body of the clock, while a hint of whimsy is achieved through the addition of two labradorite mice. Accents of 18K gold and diamonds finish the design, which rests upon an agate plate.

The Canadian-born sculptor Baron Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof is recognized as the world's leading gemstone artist, and his international clientele includes the world’s most discerning connoisseurs. His pieces, which range from intricate objets d'art such as this to innovative bespoke jewelry, are regarded as the most prized decorative artworks in modern time.

Clocks of a similar design by Zadora are pictured on pages 128-129 of The Art of Zadora: America's Faberge, 1999, by J. Zapata.
