    Interesting backstory on this clock. It belongs to my aunt. It belong to her father and grandfather before him. Her father was born in 1915. That gives you an idea of the age.

    Do you have any idea how old this clock is?

    What model it is?

    Looking at that case and pendulum, do they appear to be original and AnSonia?

    Do you all have any general information on this particular clock or the model? 5dee93c43f7c23e7a35c2a1dc1f359c7.jpg 3988bd09eddf9badf521c702e34fdf2d.jpg d4a2d9f7f2ab1ab9d1c4e7e7c9c2e16c.jpg 583d8872302256d9862f04a2b66864c6.jpg 9091c4b9e790a84c1d988659c49aae7a.jpg 688531a52219125c01a36308996925e5.jpg 3c5c27962a549c877e4db6b9a21c70ab.jpg bc2cd351c1caca169fac3b48deac3434.jpg 34706134a4973d863cd63d45038b5ec7.jpg 810015a5d367ba906e920e8eefed639a.jpg

    Your clock is the Kirkwood model which was shown in Ansonia's sales literature around 1901

    Did the Kirkwood Model come with different cases? The reason I ask is when I Google images of the Kirkwood model I don't see this particular case design.

    I had one without the base part that was fitted into a large mirror, likely for a hotel.

    I just did a little better Google image search and there are numerous examples this exact case. Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction. My aunt will be happy to know what she has from her grandfather
