    This is a an Ansonia mantle clock, circa. 1883-1929 as only the New York location is on the label and face. I'm trying to narrow down the precise model and date, but I can't find any others with this particular shape of face.

    The time piece has "B24" stamped at the bottom as well as "Ansonia".

    Any help is appreciated!

      Is there any numbers in very small print like underneath the 6, or to the sides of it...waaaay on the bottom of the face.

      There are so many model names and or numbers, I checked. This is a beauty!

      Love Ansonia...can't find your model in my references but considering the history of the *original* company I would guess that it's circa is somewhere around 1925. The rights to the "Ansonia" name were sold to a business in Lynnwood Washington in 1969. So this may be a "genuine" reproduction. It's hard to say without more photos of the clock's movement and details.

      Thanks, everyone! I keep finding very similar Ansonia clocks but none with the same face - all are totally round. I love mine, not sure what the term is for its shape, though!

      I think that based on the geometric patterns on the face, I think it has an art deco feel, so I'm going to guess that it probably dates closer to 1929...which is fine, because I absolutely ADORE art deco :)

      That is how it is with many items. There are so many it is hard to find a match.
      Love all the gears inside.

      I would call this is a "Tambour" case with a blended Doric Arch style.

      Thanks for the additional photos. They are inconclusive to me. Some of the older movements had a different style of the "Ansonia" stamp in the brass plates along with patent numbers and dates. I don't have any of the newer Ansonia Clocks so I just can't say one way or the other for sure. The movement looks well made in any case. Thanks again for sharing.
