    Default Ansonia Mantle Clock Identification

    My mother has this Ansonia mantel clock. We took some pretty high resolution pictures of it today, and posted them to: http://www.geocities.com/poordudefro...a/Ansonia.html
    If that link doesn't work (bandwidth resrictions), try this one, but be warned, there will be a pop up ad: http://poordude.freeservers.com/Ansonia/Ansonia.html
    Any help in IDing this clock is appreciated greatly!

    Your picture didn't come through too well, but it looks to be Pompeii. It is listed in the Ansonia catalogue from 1904. It also can be found in Tran Du Lys' Ansonia book.

    It has elements of the Pompeii but other parts indicate it is a different model. I know I have seen it elswhere, but I have looked through most of the books I have and cannot find it.
    The Egyptian theme was popular in the 1890s. I hope somebody comes up with a positive identity.

    A picture of the whole clock from a little further back would help.

    Hello
    Tom is right it is Pompeii and according to the book it was made around 1904.
    it is an eight day- Half-Hour Gong Strike.

    It is a very collectable clock.
    If it had the outside escapement it would be worth more.

    Hope this helps.
