Wilf, that's an interesting clock.

I have seen this clock before but it's an American Ansonia clock called "Antique Standing". It's on page 236 of Tran's book. There is also one for sale at Solvang Antique Center. It's not an ongoing auction so I don't think I would be breaking MB rules. Here's the webpage:

Solvang's Ansonia clock

The style is Art Nouveau. So that would place the age around late 19th Century to around 1920. Tran's book mentions 1901.

Have not come across this acronym before, what do you mean by T.K.S.? In any case, I think the weights and pendulum are in their normal places. It's just that the case doesn't have a door. The back of the inside of the case appears to be well panelled and decorated. Quite a neat clock!

Interesting, Wilf.
Never seen one of these, but I would guess about the turn of century.
If we saw the movement, that would tell us a lot more, as the case is so unusual it is difficult to date unless someone knows of a similar one.
Yes - what is T.K.S. :confused:

Ah - like Tks. We were thinking it was some sort of TLA (Three Letter Acronym :biggrin:)
Good luck!

BTW - you have a duplicated post, Wilf.

Wilf, in the lower right hand corner of your post there are 3 icons. Click on the one that looks like an eraser (the one in the middle). That will let you edit your post, or delete it.
