Antique Ansonia "La Vire" Model Clock

Previous Model - Next Model
La Vire

Catalog Description:

C.1912, Ansonia Clock Co., "La Vire", Royal Bonn porcelain china clock in excellent original condition (dirty, needs clean). This case has the desirable 4-color case that came into vogue after 1910, starts at dark rose at the top, down to blue, then to yellow and green in succession. The hand painted flowers below the dial show nice detail. In 20 years of selling Bonns, this is the first La Vire we have had; note the delicate little pierced work at top center. The illustration in Lyis Ansonia book (figure 2582, page 606) does not do the clock justice; it is really impressive in person. Original movement has never been out of the case and needs cleaning. Height 15 inches
