    Any info on this Ansonia iron mantle clock would be appreciated. It measures 14 inches tall, 15 inches wide, and about 5 inches deep. I couldn't find it in Tran Duy Ly's Ansonia guide. Ansonia iron.jpeg

    Nice clock. Lots of detail. Is it cast iron? At first, when I looked at the thumbnail, I thought it was black marble.

    Sorry I can't help more with the ID.

    Nothing like it in the 1886/7 catalog.

    The bottom emblem might be a Roman soldier. At least it appears to be some kind of soldier. Lots of clocks were made around themes, with several styles included in the same theme. Often they were sold in lots, with all of the various models in the same crate. This might be one of those.

    If it is from one of those lots, would more or less of this clock have been produced than models shown in the catalogs? How does that affect its popularity?

    Tran did a magnificent job in identifying as many clocks of a manufacturer as possible, but I believe he admitted that he not every clock of a manufacturer was found and published in his works.

    I do not think it is accurate to assume that a clock that does not show in his books is rare and, conversely, a clock that shows in his books was produced in large quantities.

    Regards.

    It does not appear in my copy of the 1901 Ansonia catalog. Google image search does not bring it up either.
