Art Deco mantel clocks are often considered works of art due to their unique and stylish designs that reflect the Art Deco movement of the early 20th century. The Art Deco style is characterized by geometric shapes, bold colors, and futuristic designs. 

Art Deco mantel clocks were made using a variety of materials, including metal, glass, wood, and even plastics. They often featured intricate details such as etchings, engravings, and geometric patterns. The clocks were not only functional timepieces but also decorative pieces that added a touch of  elegance and sophistication to any space.
