OLD, I don't know how old for sure. I'm thinking it was made in the 20's to 30's, but not sure. Could be older or somewhat newer. No brand, face looks like a replacement, and its loose. From the back you can see that some varnish dripped down on the back. I wouldn't think it came this way, but it might have, or somebody did a poor refinish over the years, but even that refinish is old. Could be from the late 1800s for all I know... but it should have been branded. Maybe the original face had a brand on it, but somebody replaced it with another that was unbranded. The glass may or may not be original, it's painted on the inside, and some of that is worn too, age and use appropriate. A helpful Ebayer noted that this clock MIGHT be an Ansonia, but it requires some disassembly to check for sure, and I'm not willing to attempt that. When I got this clock, I thought it non-functional and keyless, but after photographing, I was wrapping this c
lock up in plastic wrap, and by turning it this way and that, something came loose, so I opened it back up to see what happened. Lo and behold, the key was there. So I wound both the clock spring and the chime spring, and they both work. It ran for 15 hours on about half a wind. I'm loathe to wind it too much, old springs can break. However, the clock hands will need to be reset to be in sync with the chimes. It's about two hours off. It does chime once at the half hour. The tiny thing that holds the minute hand on is missing, so you will need to have one of those put on. However it's good to know the mechanicals still work. Maybe the oiling and shaking out the key did the trick? Anyway, with a minor bit of restoration and a little more knowledge than I have, this could be one fantastic old clock that's not only beautiful but functional. If you want to make a deal, contact me before there are any bids, and I will change the listing to suit whatever deal we make. Once there is a bid, the listing stands as is.
