    I bought this clock at an estate auction at an old farm house-very solid and appears to be cast iron with iron horses on each side-It is an Ansonia and no matter where I look I can't find this exact model...any information would be greatly appreciated!

      Can't find other examples online but my reference has this model as the Ansonia "Coventry" Mantel clock from circa 1914. If that's what you have it should measure about 9 3/4" high by 17" wide with a 4" dial. Are those your clock's measurements? If so, I think we may have solved your mystery. If not, what other questions would you have for members?

      I did find another example searching under Ansonia Horse Mantel Clock. It was described but not identified as the "Coventry". Here's a link:

      Nice clock. Not seeing many examples around so I think it's safe to say that it is not commonly found in the market. The one selling at auction went for just over $100 with an 18% buyer's premium. That was back in October of 2013, Tacoma Washington. Hope that helps.

      Fantastic information Bruce! Thank you very much for your time and help! I'm glad I found this website. I'd say whoever landed that clock in the auction stole it! I couldn't let this one go for that. Do you have books on clocks that you use to help identify these clocks?

      You're welcome Tony. That happens at auctions sometimes. I'm usually not that lucky but fortunately the market usually keeps prices fair and reasonable unless a bidding war erupts. Auctions can be fun.

      Glad to be able to help. There are so many clocks made through history that it is sometimes very difficult, if not impossible, to identify them. Yes, I have a lot of books and bookmarked websites that I use to help me identify clocks. As a collector, they are almost a must have for me.

      If we've solved your mystery, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your post. Thanks for sharing. It's a nice looking model.
