Hi there. I have a 1880? Ansonia, New York clock. I believe this clock was manufactured with in the first year of operation before the fire occured. It is cast iron, brass and wood. Fully operational and has key, and still "bongs" every hour and half hour. The clock is quite heavy. The decoration is magnificent but a little faded. Dont know to much other than it is quite rare and besides missing the glass on the face of the clock door is in fair condition for the age. Stamped on the inside of the cast iron, inside the clock is the number 112. Any information of the age and any idea of worth would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Denise,
    This Ansonia clock is called the "Dover" which was a relatively small clock measuring 10 1/4 inches in height and 9 1/2 inches in width with a 5 1/2 inch dial. It is from circa 1904. This particular configuration originally sold for $7.25 which would have been about $175 in 2010. In mint original condition it had an appraised book value of $275 in 2004 (Tran Duy Ly). If you do an internet search on the clock model you'll find several listed at retail mark-up. One just recently sold on Ebay for $125 (Oct 22, 2011). Hope this helps you.

    Regards
