    Default Correct Movement for Ansonia Porcelain Clock?

    I have an Ansonia porcelain clock case with a rococo sash bezel and plain, as opposed to outside escapement, dial and nothing else, not even a gong. Can anyone tell me what the right movement is for this clock and how it is fixed in the case? The back of the dial has no posts to pin a movement to, and the dial itself just sits in the front opening with a friction fit.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    There is a frame that clamps onto the front porcelain opening in three places. Cardboard is placed between the brass plates that form the three clamps and the porcelain case. Bolts that thread into the frame are used to tighten the clamps.Overtightening of these clamps is what cracks cases. The movement bolts to the frame.I could post some pictures if you would like. John
