    Vincente Minnelli art deco Atmos clock gifted to him by Judy Garland. (ca. 1940s) Vintage original Art Deco-style Atmos perpetual motion clock measuring 8.25 x 9.25 x 6.26 in. With removable glass cloche cover. Gifted to Vincente Minnelli by Judy Garland after the production of the MGM film The Clock. Garland, unhappy with the work of the film's original director, requested that Minnelli replace him. This clock was a token of her gratitude for his stellar work on the film. The two had become romantically involved during production of Meet Me in St. Louis, and were engaged to be married by the time The Clock was finished shooting. Mechanicals untested. Some age, wear, and pitting to metal elements. In good condition.
