Mantel clock, Gold Gilt Ansonia antique, Please Read The Full Description,
This cast iron clock was made by the Ansonia Clock Co., of Brooklyn, New York. This is an early example bearing the patent date on the back of May 3, 1892. The clock is 100% original which retains the week duration wind up balance wheel movement. The clock was ultrasonically cleaned, then oiled and the hair spring was demagnetized. The clock keeps time for about 5 days, do not expect quartz accuracy for these type of clocks. Actually it is a miracle that it still works, these novelty clocks were always considered as disposable. Clock retains it's original convex beveled glass crystal and silvered brass dial. The gold plating has some wear on the edges. The case has been lightly polished and sealed with lacquer. The clock weighs 3 1/2 pounds without packing. Clock is 5" tall, 4" wide, and 2 3/4" deep. See last photo for some but not all of the desk and mantel clocks we have listed for sale.
