ANTIQUE ANSONIA CORONET MODEL TIME & STRIKE METAL & GLASS MANTLE CLOCK @ 1902
- Source: eBay
Estate find - beautiful Antique Ansonia model Coronet Mantle Clock circa 1902. It is marked Trademark A on the dial and on the movement it's marked Ansonia New York with an A inside a sq, inside another square. It is very heavy metal construction with beveled glass doors front and back and beveled glass sides. The dial is porcelain and is ringed by brilliants. The pendulum is also covered in brilliants. This belonged to my clients grandmother, she said that it was working however we could not find the wind up key to test it. When I picked it to move it, the strike/chime started working. I'm inclined to believe that it is working but can't verify or guarantee it. There are a few other issues - The glass doors front and back have chips missing in the corners, see pics. The dial looks like it is missing a center cover piece?, though it looks good as is, and the bottom of the pendulum is threaded yet there is nothing that on it? The clock is 16" tall, 8 1/2" wide and 7 1/4" deep. It weighs 16 lbs.Payment is due at auction end. I accept paypal. Shipping fee is $25.00 which includes double boxing, protective foam, and insurance. The item my may picked up locally for free. **** Another issue - there are 2 hairline cracks in the dial with the numerals, you can see it in the pics.
