Antique Wall Clock by Ansonia Brass Co.
Antique miniature O.G. wall clock, circa 1860-1870, made by the Ansonia Brass Co., Ansonia, Conn. Week duration with hour chime. Case is 18 ½” by 11 ¾” by 4 ¼”, has a 6 ½” square restored dial. The clock can wither hang on the wall or be placed on a mantel. We added the wall bracket so it can be hung on the wall. The term O.G. refers to the style of molding used. They were properly called Connecticut Shelf Clocks. Most of these early American clocks were 30 hour duration due to size. This one is an 8 DAY chiming clock which makes it very desirable, especially to a collector. The movement has not been restored and may require servicing after shipping. The movement is very clean with no visible wear. It has been running and keeping time for several weeks. This early movement is very large, 5 steel pillars, pinned plates, retains the original hand forged steel main springs.
The mahogany case has been cleaned and waxed. There are a few minor nicks in the veneer. The brass has been polished and sealed.
See another early example of an Ansonia Connecticut wall clock we have for sale. In both clocks the movements are original to the cases, however for some reason the Ansonia Brass Co. and the Ansonia Brass and Copper Co. did not stamp the movements. Only after the company moved to Brooklyn NY were the movements marked. The etched glass with heart etching appears to be original and damage free. The top glass has a scratch, it is original glass. Clock has excellent label.
