FINE ANTIQUE CLOCKS

1890'S ANSONIA OAK MANTEL CLOCK "BEDFORD MODEL"

(Item: XC-313)
ANSONIA OAK
MANTEL CLOCK

TIME, STRIKE AND ALARM
AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A SHELF CLOCK PRODUCED BY THE ANSONIA CLOCK COMPANY OF NEW YORK DURING THE LATE 1800'S. THESE CLOCKS ARE OFTEN CALLED CONNECTICUT SHELF OR KITCHEN CLOCKS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY, SINCE I USUALLY SEE THEM IN A LIVING ROOM OR DEN.

THE CASE IS SOLID OAK AND IS IN GREAT CONDITION. IT HAS A NICE AMOUNT OF VICTORIAN GINGERBREAD WITH SOME SIMPLE CARVINGS. THE CASE HAS BEEN CLEANED BUT APPEARS RETAIN THE ORIGINAL FINISH.
AS YOU CAN SEE THE SILVERED GLASS FRONT PANEL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND GIVES EVERY INDICATION OF ALSO BEING ORIGINAL.

THE DIAL AT ONE TIME HAS BEEN TOUCHED UP, BUT IT IS ON THE ORIGINAL PAPER.

THE MOVEMENT WHICH HAS BEEN OVERHAULED ($200 REPAIR) IS OF EIGHT DAY'S DURATION. IT STRIKES THE HOUR AND HALF HOUR. THE ALARM ALSO WORKS.

THE CLOCK DOES HAVE THE ORIGINAL PENDULUM.

A BEAUTIFUL ADDITION TO A MANTEL, TABLE OR SHELF.
