    Whoever finished the dial did a very nice job.

    Here is my "Unique". I replaced the gold in the incised designs. Bill, I think I have seen that dial on another Ansonia clock but haven't been able to find it. Could we see the movement on your Unique? The numerals are just in circles on the dial, cartouches are separate enameled plaques that are fastened to the dial. Yours seem to be flat and a part of the dial.

    [QUOTE=whcureton;740413]Here is my humble contribution to the Ansonia photo collection. It is a simple little enameled cast iron "Unique" (Ly page 302 #1128). But what makes this particular "Unique" TRULY unique is the porcelain dial with fancy numerals in light blue round cartouches. The photo doesn't show it but this specimen has a gorgeous thick beveled glass door. I had NEVER seen a dial like this before and when it became available I just had to have it.

    When I see this dial I think of a Boston clock for some reason.
    When looking through the Ansonia bible I did not find many movement with this bezel either. Most have some design on the edge of the bezel and almost all have a design of like bullets heads around the dial.
    I did find the dial posted in the book and have posted a picture of it 1895.
    What is the size of your dial? The pictures says 3 3/4".

    I do not know what a Dot Movement is do you?

    Hello Don, Richard et. al.
    Yes ... the dial on my Unique is porcelain ... you might say creme porcelain, I guess, and the round blue cartouches that contain the fancy numerals (in black) are an integral part of the dial. I will take photos of the movement a little later in the day and post them but it looks like Richards. I also do not know what a "dot movement" is ... I looked at your posting Don and that is the first time that I saw that designation. How interesting. A new mystery to dig in to. I went from beginning with Made in Occupied Japan novelty clocks to Ansonia's in 2 years ... what a stretch, eh?

    We have a little information on, but no pictures of, the dot movement in this thread. It refers to a clock called the Trilby, which you may view here and here.

    Here is another photo of my dial and a photo of the movement in my Unique. Also, just for grins, a photo of my Cabinet Antique. A very "stately" clock that reeked of money ... made a statement about you if you owned one back in the day.

    Richard, what did you use to redo the incise? I'm getting ready to work on mine and like the "shine" you obtained on the incising.

    I used a toothpick to get any "junk" out of the incised design. Then used an extra fine gold pen from the craft store. You have to be careful and not get too much on the pen tip. I wore my magnifiers. Most of these pens dispense the ink/gold when the tip is pressed against a surface. I pressed against a 3x5 card to insure there wasn't too much on the tip. Carefully follow the design. Let dry and remove any that's outside the lines by gently using 0000 steel wool.

    There may be other methods but that's mine.

    Thanks, Richard. I have been using gold leaf paint and it is rather dull. I was looking for a bright gold paint and yours looked quite bright.

    Here is a train wreck I got in the mail today. Have some work ahead of me to salvage this. I had a pair of the front ornaments on hand and the movement is soaking in rust remover right now.

It is large and heavy, I don't have exact dimentions but about 26" across 20" high. I posted some info before and the model was identified. There was some discussion about the finish, it may have been redone but not sure that is why i have some detailed interior photos. Let me know what you think. Joe

    Can anyone tell me the name of this Ansonia statue clock and what finishes were available? We just called it 'The Fiddler". My brother and his family moved to Richmond, VA in 1971-72, transferring for his employer. My parents and I drove his car there because his employer furnished him a vehicle. Parents found this in a junk/antique shop on the trip and brought it home on the bus in a suitcase, bus stopped at every cross roads on the way. It has a gutta-percha or hard rubber dial (I have seen both mentioned for use as dial material) and steel pallets. The movement has nickled plates and the springs are in barrels. It was covered in soot and smoke from a coal fire. I suspect the acid in the smoke had destroyed the original finish.Click image for larger version.

    Hi John. I found your clock ( Violinist ) in Tran Duy Ly's book of Ansonia Clocks and Watches on page 166 figure, 536. You were close when you said," Fiddler". By the way the book usually gives the value, year made and finish offered. In your clocks information section it did not have that particular information. Nice clock though. Mike

    What you have is a very rare clock. I do not think many were made not to mention the statue alone. I recently saw the statue used in a lamp but your clock is the first one I have ever seen as a clock except for the one in the book. Mike is right they do not list it in the clock section but only in the Statues section. This clock is like almost of Ansonia statues that were finished in Japanese Bronze and yours was make in 1904. List at $7.50 for only the statue. It was the upper scale price of Ansonia smaller statues by .50 cents

    I am happy to have finally seen one. The one in the book was a clock owned by Lyle Segelberg who has since past on. I did check the list of clocks sold by the estate and it was not there so I know now that there are two for sure.

    I tried to buy the statue used as a lamp but missed the winning bid.

    Please post a complete picture showing all of the clock. Is the top missing anything it should have a small flame.

    Enjoy it forever.
