      Hi,
      You have an Ansonia Westminster Chiming Tambour Mantel Clock. The Tambour style case is also sometimes called "Camel Hump" or "Camel Back" also a "Napoleon Hat". Tambour means "Drum" which refers to the round part of the case framing the Dial and housing the movement. The base of this case normally gives plenty of space (or length) for long chime rods. The long rods typically give these clocks a very beautiful sound.

      My guesstimate for your clock would be mid to late 1920s.

      As far as prices, you know the name. It's simply a matter of doing a search on e-Bay for sold listings. Try "Ansonia Westminster Tambour" for your key words.

      Does that solve your mystery?
