I have relisted this clock at a lower starting bid. A GOOD RUNNING antique Ansonia Wall Clock, commonly referred to as a school house clock. Eight Day clock, time only. This clock can be found on page 200 of Tran Duy Ly's Ansonia Clock book, depicted in a 1901 catalogue reprint...Listed as a 10 inch DROP OCTAGON, the clock sold for $5.50 in 1901! The case is Rosewood veneer, and is in good condition considering being over 100 years old. Please see photos for some veneer repair that must have been done many years ago (the touched up areas blend in pretty well with the color of the veneer). The clock is approximately 21 1/2 inches high and 14 1/2 inches wide. Dial is approximately 10 inches in diameter, and is signed Ansonia Clock Co. Movement has been cleaned and oiled, and is stamped Ansonia Clock Co. Original buyer of this clock points out that the movement may not be original to the clock case (see additional screw holes in the case, as well as the winding arbor has been filed down, possibly to fit the dial properly. Regardless, it is an authentic antique Ansonia movement in good condition. A nice STRONG BEAT and great sound. Nice label inside the clock Ansonia Clock Co, Brooklyn, NY. Original glass both covering the dial and the bottom door. I believe that the pendulum is a replacement. Old key may be original to the clock, but no way of telling. This is a nice antique clock in good running order. As will all mechanical antique clocks, it may need minor adjustment due to shipping. Winning bidder to pay $26.00 postage/handling/insurance. Clock will be shipped 2 day US Priority Mail within 2 business days or less upon receipt of your PayPal, Money Order, or Cashier's Check, or will hold a bit longer if you prefer to use a Personal Check as your method of payment. Thank you for looking, and good luck bidding.
