Description:
Here we have for sale a good quality antique 16? mahogany Ansonia station wall clock, which has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now in good working order and condition, as can been seen from the photos.

The Ansonia Clock Company was one of the major 19th century American clock manufacturers. It produced a large number of clocks in the period between 1850 and 1929. This clock features a beautiful ebony colour dark mahogany case, with a moulded brass bezel and a pendulum access door on the underside. The mahogany case has been French polished to revive the wonderful ebony colour. On the back of the clock is a bracket to attach the clock to the wall.

This clock houses a top quality single brass barrel spring driven Ansonia timepiece mechanism. The movement has been restored and serviced and is now in good mechanical order, ensuring this clock is reliable and keeps good time. The pendulum, which is attached to the mechanism by accessing the clock from the door below, can be adjusted in length to allow you to regulate the clock speed. The clock comes with a key, which is used to wind the mechanism through the centre of the face dial.

This clock face features an ivory colour dial with black Arabic numerals and elegant shaped hour and minute hand. A hinged solid brass bezel houses the glass face that protects the tin dial and face whilst in operation. The brass bezel opens on a right hand hinge to allow you to adjust or set the time. There is a catch to the back of the clock that locks the brass bezel in place and stops it from accidentally swinging open.

The clock looks great in a variety of rooms and also in either a traditional or contemporary setting. This truly is a very beautiful wall clock of classic styling and quality construction. It will become a member of the family after not too long! So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely clock.
