Ansonia Clock Co.\'s Standing Regulator, "Antique Standing", ca 1901. They made a series of 6 different models of the Antique Standing clocks, and in my humble opinion this is the nicest of them all. There is one a few inches taller but it is open well from the dial to the bottom and has very little ornamentation. This clock has a great deal of ornamentation and is the model sought by most collectors.Movement is 8 day, weights pulled up by chains, strikes a gong on the half hours and hours. 10 inch silver dial is etched with black paint in the etchings. Dial insert is also etched. Has been running here in our storage room for several months.The old mahogany case stands 94 inches high and has brass ornaments top to bottom. There are several large brass-bronze pieces. The large piece behind the pendulum is always a little brighter than others, and has been so on every one of this model I have seen. I am told it was made from a slightly different alloy. None of the metal pieces on the case have ever been cleaned and there is none missing. There are side doors to access the movement.This mahogany case is untouched and never cleaned, all original finish on the wood and metal.. Original throughout. One tiny piece of molding on the top left side of the bonnet was lost when transporting the clock to me. I could have had the piece made, but then I couldn\'t say the clock was 100% original. We just don\'t get clocks any more original than this. Ly-Ansonia No.819.
