Fabulous Anglo-American Striking Wall Clock with a full glazed hinged front door. The handcrafted case being made in England (most probably London or Liverpool), and the movement being imported from the US, a sturdy Ansonia Clock Company mechanism.

The clock is in excellent general condition for its c140 years of age, having a highly decorative and nicely patinaed Walnut case with Fruit Wood, Ebony and Boxwood marquetry. Its architectural design includes an Ogee base with rolled scroll, and retains much of its original hand-crafted wooden embellishment, with apex finials, turned side-columns, internal fretwork, and further finials lower down. In keeping with the general authentic design spec of these much sought-after wonderful old timepieces, the clocks garniture includes a case-back mirror secured to the rear of the drop-down aperture, and a sculptured brass pendulum bob in the style of a mercurial shaped appendage.

The clocks clean ivory coloured metal dial has been professionally restored with black Roman numerals finished with a pair of original blued steel American Spade hands secured with a pinned collet. The dial is then surrounded by a spun brass bezel, mounted within the hinged glazed door fretwork.

The robust and highly efficient Ansonia 8-day pendulum driven movement is set between two skeleton brass plates, (the front plate being stamped with the “Ansonia Clock Co.” company name and an 1876 Patent notification). The clock strikes its original cast iron bell on the hours only and comes with an authentic brass winding key.

…A fantastic example of these hugely popular antique clocks!
