    Default Re: Ansonia "Triumph" mirrorside - beatscale or not? (RE: cazboy)

    Doug,

    Entering "Ansonia Triumph" on AntiqueClocksPriceGuide.com results in 19 pictures. Of the 19 clocks, 6 have the double-barrel pendulum, 6 have the bulls-eye pendulum, and 5 have the Jacot-style pendulum. Two can't be discerned. Of course, which of these have been replaced, if any, is unknown.

    Now that's interesting. But the Triumphs on that website may or may not have original pendulums - I'm putting in a reproduction double-barrel type from Timesavers for now, but I'm on the lookout for an original. Just went to the AZ Sunshine Regional yesterday; didn't see one. I put a request on our e-mart, though.

    The early Ansonia TRIUMPH clocks had the enamel over metal beat scale at the bottom of the back board over a black paper backing. Later models did not have this scale. Remember, Ansonia made this model from around 1880 to well into the 20th century with very minor changes to the styling. The early models used the two barrel pendulum. The very earliest models used a screw pillar movement. Later models, possibly early 1890's, started using the more familar nickle plated round-bob pendulum. Early models used the large arch plate movement; later models used the smaller version. Walnut cases were popular at first, oak later on. Most of the side cupids I've ever seen were silver plated. The door stencils varied at to what was on hand at the time of manufacture. The beat scale you see for sale in Timesavers is for a wall clock, such as the Capitol. I don't know of anyone that is reproducing the smaller beat scale you find on the early Triumphs. Al

I don't have the Tran book for Ansonia and I can't tell from any of the pictures I see on the net.
    Thanks in advance.
