• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

It actually kinda looks like the Ansonia Daisy (1904 catalogue in Tran). However, that one is listed as 4 1/4" high. So what would be the height of yours, if you included the height of the upraised handle? Said also to have a 1 1/2" dial.

Hi Steven, The height is bang on 4 inches with handle raised, the dial is as you stated 1 1/2 inch. I think I could live with your ID. Any chance of a photo of the Ansonia.

Here is the Daisy per Tran, both the 1904 catalogue picture and a photo.

Hi Steven, now I have seen the picture not so sure, the little handle is quite plain on the one I have. Undone 4tiny nuts on the bottom and it all came apart, apart from the movement, will post a photo soon, it was quite clean, gave it a touch of oil, adjusted the hour hand, now back togeather, quite heavy little clock

A picture of the movement might be useful. It could jar someone's memory. I did fudge a bit on the ID, of course, since the pictures from Tran were not of the best. OTOH, perhaps your handle is a replacement. An ornate carriage clock would want an ornate handle rather than something plain.
