    I am trying to fix this clock but missing the pendulum and keys. thoughts on type, style and weight of the pendulum along with where one can be purchased along with the size keys required would be helpful.

    Hi, Karl, welcome to the message board.
    As my learned colleague H/C mentions, Timesavers can help you with what you need.
    www.timesavers.com
    Three different pendulums are listed for the Ansonia clocks, you need to estimate a length that will be correct for your clock: 19369, 19370, or 19371.
    Key size can be measured across the winding arbor square. My best guess would be 15945, or possibly 10085.

    That was great advise and I appreciate it. The clock I am getting is from a close person friend whose husband was a avid clock collector before his death 20 years ago. The clock also is missing one cast winged griffin foot. Any ideas as where to get one?

    You will have to find someone who can cast metal, and make a reproduction from your existing foot. Finding one anywhere else might be a lifelong quest.

    He could post his request in the 'parts wanted' thread here. He might get lucky and be eternally grateful. :)
