Antique Ansonia "Regulator No. 17" Model Clock

Previous Model - Next Model
Regulator No. 17

Catalog Description:

C.1885, Ansonia Clock Co., "Regulator No. 17", with restorations. This is a solid oak case and is VERY heavy. It was in a barber shop in Michigan for some time, with limited space, and the Victorian bottom and a portion of the top were removed. Later, a cabinet maker created a lovely bottom and top which look OK, but are very different from those shown in the 1894 Ansonia catalog (see Ly, No. 571, page 176). He managed to stain them a caramel color, leaving the old finish on the main case intact. The 2-jar Mercury pendulum is antique, but may have come from another clock (it is a Waterbury pendulum). The mercury is clean, but can not be taken to the hotel and must be picked up in Salem, NH. The movement is a typical pinwheel with center seconds hand and porcelain dial in xlnt condition. It is running robustly. Impressive despite the case modifications. Height 86 inches
