  3. Congratulations and *very* nice job of restoring the clock to its original condition! :)
  4. Wonderful piece Russ! Thanks for sharing it.
  5. No photo, but here is a listing I found on the Internet: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ansonia-porcelain-snipe-clock-case
  6. It is in a class known as "Novelty Clocks". I didn't find your particular model in any of my references but the dial/movement was used in a lot of models I came across. It's a nice clock. Thanks for...
  7. Corphelp, you still there? Any questions?
  8. From what I can see, it looks like your daughter has a model called the Seth Thomas "Ideal" from circa 1906. Here is a similar example. It doesn't have the medallion in the front, but other than tha...
  9. Hi. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Nice clock. Do you mind if I ask, is this an heirloom, do you collect or deal in antiques? I think I've seen this model before. I'll have to research it and wi...
  10. Nice piece. It's pretty amazing what type of objects/art work can be made into a clock with the fairly accurate and relatively inexpensive battery powered quartz movements. "Time Marches On". Tha...
  11. Good point..."yet". I'm sure it will find a good home with you if you decide to pick it up. Chimers can be high maintenance when the time comes, but I know you take very good care of your collection...
  12. Hey Shawnicus. This looks like a contemporary Ansonia Clock. The Company was re-opened in 1969 under a totally different business entity. In any case, you have a nice looking clock to consider th...
  13. Hi Scott, That's very kind. Thank you. It's a great site. There's so much more to it than just clocks but I'm happy to be able to contribute if and where I can. See you around my friend. B...
  14. Everything goes better with Coke! This is a cute Anniversary Clock. Thanks for sharing with us.
  15. That's a "Tambour" style case which his part of your desk. I've never seen anything quite like it. I've seen desk clocks before but this takes that whole thing to another level! :) Looking forward...

  17. Looks great! Love the grain and finish. Thanks for sharing with us.
  18. You're very welcome Scott. Thanks for sharing!
  19. Hello again Betty. I'm still unable to find another example online. That would suggest that it is not a common model although I can't say with any certainty that it is rare. It certainly is distinc...
  20. Hi Betty. Without a manufacturer's name to go on, it becomes more difficult to find the model. It becomes a matter of elimination. However, I lucked up and found your model. You have an "Elma" ...
  21. The hands should come off if there is some type of nut or taper pin. I think that the metal cylinder that the nails go through and into the case certainly is held in place by the nails. There are ...
  22. Never seen anything quite like this one before Shawnicus. I only spot one pivot through the back plate. Would be interesting to see the movement from the front and sides. Not sure that would help a...
  23. Hello Scott, It looks like you have a model called the "Englewood" manufactured by the Waterbury Clock Company. It's from circa 1917. Here's another example on the web: http://www.worthpoint.com...
  24. You're very welcome Laurie. I'm glad we could help. :)
  25. Not sure from your photos as they are dark with a lot of flash glare but it looks like you may have an Ansonia "Dover" from circa 1904. Check for yourself by comparing this example: http://www.antiqu...
  26. You're very welcome Nea. I'm glad we were able to help you.

  28. Nice save. Thanks for sharing!
  29. Hello again Bob. Your Seth Thomas is a bit older. It is a Cottage Clock named the Octagon Top "C" from circa 1865-1880. Your label states "Thomaston Connecticut". The earliest examples of Octagon ...
  30. Hi Bob. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. You've got a couple of nice examples of Antique American Clocks here. The New Haven was from their "Mercury" Line. There were three distinct models in this ...
  31. I would look at the retirement presentation plaque as a good indication of approximately when the clock was manufactured. Regarding its value, I would look at the current market for Kienzle Westmins...

  33. Nice picks! Thanks for sharing.
  34. Hello Neonbrian. Welcome to Collectors Weekly. Your clock is an Ansonia model called the "Hermes" from circa 1904. The finish looks really good on it. I have to wonder if it may have been refinis...
  35. Greetings rowletr, Great heirloom! Thanks for sharing with us. This Ansonia model is called the "Cabinet Antique". My reference has it at circa 1894. It certainly could have been made several...
  36. I haven't had any experience with Linden Clocks. Evidently, it was an American Clock Company that went through several different owner/companies. Perhaps they imported a Korean Movement to put in t...

  39. Nice looking clock. Are there any stamps or markings on the movement? It looks like it may be a pendulum regulated mantel clock. If so, I doubt that it would have been used on anything mobile like...
  40. Nice collection you have going shawnicus. Thanks for sharing with us.
  41. Nice looking clock! Thanks for sharing. I don't collect Torsions but I know they can be a bear when it comes to the suspension spring. Good job bringing this one back to life.
  42. There are replacement/reproduction parts available for this clock model. If you are interested, go to eBay and search for "Ansonia Clock Parts Angel Rosalind Mantle Clock" and you should find the li...

  48. Hey Shawnicus. There's a faded stamp of the model name on the Directions Card attached to the inside of the back door. It's a Preston 1W which indicates it is a mechanical or a spring driven "W"ou...
