I purchase this clock recently and I have never seen this Ansonia model before. I was hoping a professional may help me find out the year and model. Dimensions are 15 3/4" x 14" x 6 3/4". Cast iron case with amazing detail and in great condition! This piece is massive, weighing in at 37lbs.
I am a collector of mantel clocks. Most of my collection is Adamantine Seth Thomas and the Cast Iron Ansonia. I bought this clock as a non running project. I made an adjustment to the pallets on the open escapement and oiled the pivots. Amazingly, clock is running great! The movement is still very dirty, so it will need to be disassembled eventually, but I will enjoy it for a while as is. The "tick tock" on this clock sounds amazing, it echoes throughout the house. This clock has instantly become my favorite piece in the house! I just wanted to share this with you to see if anyone can help me solve this mystery. Thank you!
