The clock is in all original near perfect condition.It was made in the late 1850s. It is an extremely classy “early Americana” clock in need of a warm loving home. This is one of the very first clocks made by the original Ansonia Co. The First Ansonia Clock Co. , Ansonia, Conn. was destroyed by fire in 1854. This is a weight driven clock with what looks to be a Mahogany or Rosewood case. The case has an Ogee frame. It is one day clock.The clock chimes at the top of each hour. It has very fast strike, I haven't have a clock to strike so fast. The power for the clock comes from 2 weights (these are the original weights) rather than springs. Weights cause the clock to keep better time rather than springs. Springs cause a clock to run faster when they are first wound and slower as they wind down. The case is especially beautiful and it is in very good condition with few very small chips to the wood ! The sides and back of the clock are also in near perfect condition.The dial is the original dial in very good condition and aged to wonderful patina. The original label on the clock is almost intact that is very rare.The clock case is in good condition and retains the original finish. Approximate dimensions are 26" tall and 15 1/2" by 4 1/2" at the base.The clock comes with original key and pendulum.Examine the pictures carefully and if you have any questions, please email me.

Exceptional collector’s piece. Would have a place in any china collection.Ansonia Clocks were made by a clock manufacturing business which started in Ansonia, Connecticut, in 1851 and which moved to Brooklyn, New York, in 1878.The Ansonia Clock Company was one of the major 19th-century American clock manufacturers. Thomas Edison visited the factory in 1878 to experiment combining clocks with his newly developed phonograph. By 1886, the company had sales offices in New York, Chicago, and London, and more than 225 different clock models were being manufactured. In 1926 the company sold its Brooklyn warehouse, but this could not stem the inevitable. In 1929 the majority of the timekeeping machinery and tooling was sold to the Soviet government's US trading company Amtorg, just before the stock market crash. The parts, machinery and key skilled workers were shipped out of the USA to form the basis, along with the remains of a watch company purchased a year later, of the clock and watch industry in Moscow such as Poljot and Sekonda.
