    Hi all, I'm new to this group. Hope you can help. I'm in a bit of a quandary. I inherited my grandmother's Ansonia Royal Bonn clock. I'm puzzled since the number and model on the back (#2993, La France) do not match any picture I've seen in any book or on line, nor have I seen a clock with...

    Seth Thomas #1 ID or is it an Ansonia

    I have what appears to be a rosewood ST #1 regulator from say the 1870s. It has the rectangular movement (on a seat board)with maintaining power with the weight behind the weight board. It is the weight board that is unusual in that it too appears to be a regular ST weight board except it...

    Hi, someone is selling this old clock and believes it is an Ansonia clock from around 1880-90. The movement is signed but not the dial. My Tran Duy Ly Ansonia book has not yet arrived so I wonder if someone can look this up in the meantime. The seller says the clock is in running order but...

    Ansonia Crystal Palace Clock

    Just picked up this one and i am wondering if the dome is the original to the clock. The glass is very thick and wavey with air bubbles. The pictures that i have seen of these clocks have no knob on the dome. The dome does look hand blown. thanks Angelo

    Ansonia or Waterbury?

    I am still struggling to identify this clock. Someone has suggested it may be a Waterbury frame married to an Ansonia movement. I have no access to reference books, and the local bookstore doesn't have any, either. I can use some help identifying this clock and/or learning where I can find...

My clock has an unsigned movement, and there are subtle cosmetic differences: a)top finial is different b)base rosette is a lion's head on mine...

    Ansonia Beehive 1863 - What Is Correct Pendulum??

    Hello, Clock supply houses (Merritt's, LaRose, Timesaver's) can provide correct pendulum for eight day and 30 hour movements. The bob should be a brass faced adjustable bob. The standard eight day version is @2" diameter and the standard 30 hour version is @1 3/4" diameter. Cordially, Carl

    Ansonia (New York)

    It is in fact an Ansonia clock. The model name is "Burton"c.1894. It sold for $5.50 at the time. The case appears to be oak. The glass and pendulum are definitely original. The hands and dial look old and original to me as well. If by "cleaning" you are referring to the movement, give us your...

    Ansonia Crystal Reg

    Just finished overhauling an Ansonia Crystal regulator and the strike sounds bad, has a lot of vibration tin sound. I have checked all the glass panels and both doors for tightness. The sound seems to be resonating from the gong stand because it gets better if I grasp the stand during...

    ansonia triumph

    Graeme, Great story. Finding the original cupids was real luck as most of these clocks I've seen always have them replaced with reproductions. Be carefull with cleaning as the original patina is what most collectors prize. I use Howard's orange oil on my clocks, it cleans and feeds the wood...
