Wonder, intrigue, curiosity and discovery – qualities that are so often missing from our busy lives.
That was before Authentic Models. They’re interested in appealing to the
mind as well as to the eye. Designed to mirror the unique beauty of
antique objects and curiosities, Authentic Models’ pieces come across as
both functional and decorative, lovingly recreated from materials that
don’t break from tradition.
This Time Companion is inspired by the utilitarian walking stick, which transformed into an elegant accessory essential to a gentleman’s de-rigueur fashion statement. Its design, shape and material conveyed one's taste and status, while the sticks themselves often hid everything from rapiers for duelling to flasks and compasses. However, the most popular walking stick of the time featured a wind-up clock set in the knob, which made it both a fancy decorative prop and a practical timekeeper.
Authentic Models' Time Companion is made from solid hardwood, with a polished finish, and bronzed, brass trimmings that exude antique charm. A thick, glass clock is set in the knob of the walking stick, and works using a wind-up mechanism, so you can keep time in a traditional way. As beautiful as it is practical, this walking stick is an elegant, nostalgic piece from a world of its own...
