Sexy Vintage

I adore color.

Magic can happen when 2 objects' colors & forms 'pop' side by side...

To my eye, this is a perfect example.

That they are 2 stylish and usable objects pleases me no end...

Lately, one of the criteria for my shop items is they
must be unique/beautiful + useful.

Not to say that that excludes a piece of fine art.
(one of the most necessary items we should have in our lives).

These 2 beauties have parted ways however.
The fabulous Tensor light sold quickly, leaving behind it's swish partner.

Never mind. One thing I've learned is that there is always a new treasure around the corner.

I can't wait for the encounter...

Found. A vintage, circa 1962, electronic wall clock;
the ATO-MAT S, made by Junghans, a German company known to be one of the most innovative watch companies in the world.

I love the look. Uber sophisticated with it's deep metal frame inset with the matte brushed finished face. Topping it off is a substantial leather strap with hefty brass 'hook'.

I like to give all items I sell a good test run. It is currently ticking consistently in my hallway. When I am confident about it's mechanics I will be listing it in my shop...
