      Gubelin was a renown jeweler an clock retailer since 1854, they have a gemmology lab for certificates!
      This deskclock is rather art deco (1920/1930) mounted with an old chinese sculpture (jade?) ; other green parts are rather green onyx, for the purple parts, difficult to say.
      Beautiful piece!!!

      Details & how things are made today are a completely different quality compared to how it use to be. As they say times are a changing, not all for the better either.
