18.5 inches x 18.5 inches x 5.5 inches. Marble Ansonia clock. Was my Grandfathers, think he bought it at auction, haven't a clue when it was made or the name of it.

    There is a book on Ansonia clocks which I used to carry, hopefully someone has a copy of it. Very nice, your clock !~Phil.

    Are you absolutely certain that this is an Ansonia clock?
  3. DaveyBob, 1 year ago
    Yes, will add a photo of inside.

    That's definitely an Ansonia Movement. I've looked through my references several times and while I found similar designs, I didn't find this model. I don't recall seeing that style of minute and hour hands on an Ansonia Clock before, but this is definitely in the ornate style of Ansonia. Probably just an unlisted model. The models that were the most similar to your heirloom were from circa 1904-6. Somewhere in there give or take 5 years, so that would be my best guess. Sorry I couldn't be more definitive. It's a very lovely clock.

    Thanks for taking the time to look. I have been looking at a few similar designs. Someone told me it was similar to a French column clock.

    You're welcome. It definitely has an Ansonia "Style" to it. The hand style bothers me a little and I've only known Ansonia to make black marble, green and white onyx, but my references are by no means complete. Regards.
