A specific question for a specific clock. This is what it looked like when it arrived from the eBay seller: After ultrasonic cleaning, lots of Brasso, and lots of research, I am fairly certain that this is the clock piece of the Ansonia Dance shelf clock circa 1906. Down to the filed off hand of the dancer, this is exactly what my clock looks like - except this clock is brass with gold gilt and mine is steel with silver gilt (I'm pretty sure). This is what my case looks like right now. Could this be a genuine Ansonia Dance clock casejust made with a different metal? Did Ansonia ever do that? I will hopefully learn more when my Tran Duy Ly inter library loan comes through. Let me know what you think. Regarding the clock itself: definitely Ansonia.
