Seller: leftarmspinner127 (405) 100%, Location: Sutton, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 381864725655 Ansonia Clock 1880s I acquired this Ansonia clock about a couple of year's ago to work on, on a clock course I attend. Basically it didn't work. I stripped it down, cleaned the pallets, cleaned the mechanism and oiled it. Look at the photos of before and after. I have just finished repairing it and it seems to go fine now. It seems a good mechanism which runs well. Hopefully it should last another lifetime before it needs further attention. I think it is probably an eight day clock but I should know later in the week.The striking mechanism works but the strike is rather muted. (But there again some people don't like a loud clock). I don't notice it! It strikes on the hour and half hour.The case itself is pretty sound but really needs stripping off and varnishing or whatever people do to them. I don't repair or clean cases.The dial looks as though the clock has been very well used. The metal bezel around the dial is broken (see photos) or worn away.The dimensions are 20" x12"x 4".I love repairing Ansonia clocks but unfortunately I have to sell them as I am forever buying new ones in need of attention.I always prefer to have clocks collected but if that is not possible I will send it via courier although I can't guarantee that it will work properly after the possible traumas it undergoes in transit. I have recently, however, sent clocks to the States and Austria and they have apparently arrived safe and sound and in good working condition (check feedback)
