I purchased an Ansonia clock through an auction and would like to find out more about it. I'm having trouble finding out the model and date it was made. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello SG!
Welcome to the NAWCC's online Forums.
It looks to me like you have a model that Ansonia called the "Boston" from around circa 1904.
They also offered the "Boston Extra" which had a more ornate top, but your clock's flat top could accommodate a wide variety of clock statuettes, which Ansonia offered.
Hope that helps.
Bruce

Thanks. I wasn't sure of the model. I couldn't anything online that looked exactly like it with the right amount of columns and flat top.

You're very welcome.
Yes, many examples of their Boston Extra, but I can't seem to find the "Boston". As mentioned, the flat top is perfect for a statuette of the owner's choosing.

Here's an auction result with a few examples of Ansonia and Gilbert statuettes: 4 Ansonia & Gilbert Clock Figures - Sep 20, 2014 | Schmidt's Antiques Inc. Since 1911 in MI
