Seller: living4treasure2014 (309) 100%, Location: Gray, Georgia, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 112018800203 Up for sale is an Ansonia Clock Company “Boston Extra” Model in a black iron casing. This clock was made by the Ansonia Clock Company in the early 1900’s. Based on research, the clock first appeared in their 1904 catalog and is a 8-day time/movement with half-hour strike. It measures 11" high, 15" long. The case is very heavy cast iron. I dropped this clock off with a Andersen’s Clock Repair shop in Macon, GA around November / December 2015 for a total overhaul. The clock was not working at the time and I did not want to sell it for parts as this is nice example of early American craftsmanship and I hated to see it be parted out or turned into a steampunk project. The internal mechanism and associated parts were cleaned, oiled, and adjusted for the overhaul and completed/ picked up April 26th2016. The clock has been sitting on my mantle for 9 days and it has kept time and has chimed every half hour. The clock can be adjusted slower or faster from the front and I have a key that will adjust the speed and wind the clock. It is not the original key; however the key came from an antique shop and fits the clock without issue. You can also adjust the speed on the pendulum, but it seems easier to adjust from the front. There are a few places with minor paint wear and loss in some of the edges and corners. I believe the paint job is original. The previous owner did scratch their name and ID on the clock. Please view picture. The representative at Andersen’s, the clock repair shop stated that the casing was in great condition considering it was made at the beginning of the century. The case is very decorative with "Verde Bronze Columns. The clock has a heavy cast brass bezel with beveled glass. The dial is porcelain, and in great shape. It's signed "Ansonia Clock Co." The movement is the original 8-day time and strike brass movement. Even though the clock is used, it is in excellent running condition since being overhauled. I cannot guarantee the clock will run after shipping due to vibrations, bumps, and possibly lack of care from the delivery company, but I do guarantee that it will be packaged well and will run after adjustment by a qualified person. The clock on its own weighs around 24 lbs. I will be placing the clock in a sturdy box and additional packing material so I am estimating the shipping based on 26 lbs with approximate measurements of 20x18x16. I will use Fedex as they are very competitive in pricing. If pricing does not show, you will need to verify Fedex delivers to your area and if not, then be prepared to pay shipping costs with USPS or UPS, whichever is more economical. Buyer can request which carrier is used, but there is no negotiation on shipping cost and the clock price is set. Insurance will be added. Buyer will have to view the pictures to determine overall condition. I have taken the necessary steps to ensure the clock will be in good condition when arrives which may require further adjustment by a professional. You can pay less for a similar clock in non-working order or can pay less than my asking price for clocks that are working, but have not had recent service. Due to age of item and weight, I will not accept returns. If damaged in transit, buyer will need to file claim with carrier or work with seller to file the claim. I will be glad to assist in any way I can. If something in my description is questionable in relation to the pictures, buyer will need to ask questions and additional pictures can be provided to answer the question. Paypal only and global shipping program is used. I will require at minimum 25 consecutive successful feedback ratings. If less than that, you will need to contact seller to discuss. If there is concern upon receipt of item, buyer will need to contact seller to determine best resolution before feedback is left. I am a top seller and it is priority for me to make sure my customers get what they are expecting. I have provided much detail so purchase in confidence.
