I recently acquired this Ansonia clock. It is quite dirty and will require a complete servicing. As I removed the movement, I did not expect to see the brocot movement. It was behind the dial, which I was a selling point for me....like the hand painted dial. Two questions:
1. Is this typical?
2. Any information on the model and date would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm not sure how common it is but I purchased a crystal regulator at a junk sale with the same find. Mine was a New Haven. Ironically, it had a solid dial in front of the dial with the Brocot escapement. I have not restored this clock yet due to time it will take to restore the brass casing to its former luster. I looked it up at the time but need to look back and see which model it was but it was from around 1925
