    IMHO, the Ansonia Brass & Copper Co. drop octagon has the most interest. They were in business from 1869 to 187t, and on January 1, 1878, they were absorbed into the (second) Ansonia Clock Company. I can't quite make out the name on the movement. Possibly Ansonia Clock Co.? That might indicate an early (2nd) Ansonia Clock Co. clock.

    I like that green lacquered longcase. Is it London made?

    Yes,the movement of the Ansonia Brass&Copper was signed by the Ansonia Clock Co. Conn.
    And yes,the green laquered longcase was London made, time incl. seconds,date and a four melody musical movement playing on a great nest of bells,sorry wasn't allowed to take off the Hood.
    The spring "OG" was by Seth Tomas,and the OG with the bird tablet was a Jerome.

    The time recorder looks like an ITR/IBM product.

    Re: Back from Vaccations

    Harold,yes,it had an ITR signature on the dial.
    Sorry,I didn't note the signature on the London made tall clock,it was something like "Dickie" or the like,with an Old-Testament forename like Ebenezar .
    And yes,I've never seen a Honda Gold Wing GL1000 with two double carburators and these big air filters,it had a marvelous sound and speed-up when it started.

    There was an Andrew Dickie, a judge of the Longitude prize.
