A fine, rare and completely original example of a diver’s helmet desk piece by Guilmet, Paris circa 1890, in the style of a Siebe Gorman deep sea diving helmet. The multi-function ‘helmet’ is set on its original black marble base with gilded plinth, and features an 8-day clock with silvered dial, Roman numerals and blued steel hands. A thermometer and barometer are set into the helmet left and right, with a compass fitted to the top. The base of the helmet features stylized fittings that would have been required to fix the helmet to the diving suit. All of the dials and instruments feature engraved calibrations, an indicator of extremely high quality. French, circa 1890.

Height: 8 inches (20 cm)
Size of base: 6 inches (15 cm) square.
