Ansonia Clock Co. floor clock, "Antique Standing", C. 1901. We have had one of this model in each of the last 3 catalogs, and we have another collection of Ansonia clocks coming that will be in the July 2004 auction. A mint original mahogany case sold for $10,725 in the January 2003 auction, while an oak case one, refinished, brought $8500 in the July 2003 auction. This 94" case is mahogany, it has been cleaned, brass at least buffed, repairs to the case made where needed to restore and enhance the original beauty. This mahogany case in my opinion is nicer than the one sold in January 2003, because it has been cleaned and looks like a piece of furniture. The January buyer requires originality and to him the crusty original look is what he collects. Twisted weights are identical in looks, but appear to be slightly wider than the weights on the previous two we sold. Like most everything else on these old clocks, perhaps the weights were not always exactly the same. Experts tell me that the brass ornaments are not all cast the same, and consequently you may have differing shades of brass on the same case. This clock is 8 day, time and strike, 2 weights that are pulled up by chains, and it strikes on a deep sounding gong. The 10" silver dial is etched with black paint in the grooves and it has a decorative brass center dial. Ly-Ansonia #819.
