Once a means of propaganda, now a quirky and stylish addition to your home – that’s the Cultural Revolution clocks, which are available now from Rouge.

Shop owner Lei is originally from China and regularly makes trips over to the country for authentic items – and indeed collectables of tomorrow. Which is what these clocks are. All were made during the period 1966-76, are composed of tin and feature their own message – the above examples say  “ Great Mentor, Great Leader, Long Life Chairman Mao” or "Long Life Chairman Mao".

Priced at just £25, you can pick them up via mail order or by calling into the shop in London.
