    The first part of the discussion on this Ansonia Extra Drop is in this thread. Thanks to Willy X for providing me with measurements.

    The first image is the box of parts. Next are the repairs and refinishing of the case. Then the drop door frame. Next is the veneer applied to the moulding and followed by staining. Then the door (without hardware) is test fit on the drop (ignore the small piece of tape).

    I still do not have glass for the access door and I am considering some sort of design. The most significant piece I am missing is the brass dial bezel but my search goes on.

    What an excellent piece of work! I like drop dial clocks and would love to own an Ansonia. At present I'm restoring an Ansonia 'El Regalo' slate clock.

    Good luck with your project!

    Aha! I have a source for the brass bezel. Will pick it up in June during the National Convention.
