      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 years before or after that date.

      It originally listed for $32. That's about the equivalent of $900 in 2016. Ansonia and antique clock collectors seem to really like this model.

      Here's an example which auctioned recently for about $2,000 (with buyer's premium)

      Thanks again for sharing.
