Description:
Here we have for sale a good quality antique 16″ mahogany Ansonia station wall clock, which has been lovingly restored to its former glory and is now in good working order and condition, as can been seen from the photos.

The Ansonia Clock Company was one of the major 19th century American clock manufacturers. It produced a large number of clocks in the period between 1850 and 1929. This clock features a beautiful ebony colour dark mahogany case, with a moulded brass bezel and a pendulum access door on the underside. The mahogany case has been French polished to revive the wonderful ebony colour. On the back of the clock is a bracket to attach the clock to the wall.

This clock houses a top quality single brass barrel spring driven Ansonia timepiece mechanism. The movement has been restored and serviced and is now in good mechanical order, ensuring this clock is reliable and keeps good time. The pendulum, which is attached to the mechanism by accessing the clock from the door below, can be adjusted in length to allow you to regulate the clock speed. The clock comes with a key, which is used to wind the mechanism through the centre of the face dial.

This clock face features an ivory colour dial with black Arabic numerals and elegant shaped hour and minute hand. A hinged solid brass bezel houses the glass face that protects the tin dial and face whilst in operation. The brass bezel opens on a right hand hinge to allow you to adjust or set the time. There is a catch to the back of the clock that locks the brass bezel in place and stops it from accidentally swinging open.

The clock looks great in a variety of rooms and also in either a traditional or contemporary setting. This truly is a very beautiful wall clock of classic styling and quality construction. It will become a member of the family after not too long! So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely clock.

Setting up the Clock:
The clock may require the pendulum to be adjusted once on the wall. The clock will only work if it is placed on a flat wall in a direct up-right position (not on a side angle). Detailed setup instructions will be included when the clock is delivered.

Object History

This clock was designed for use in public buildings such as schools or railway stations across the British colonies, predominantly India, therefore its reliability and quality of construction were paramount. This clock is of very good quality and it was constructed prior to wartime restrictions were imposed regarding materials; therefore no costs were spared in its construction.

Object Condition

This clock has been sympathetically restored to a high standard and is now in good working order. Nominal old use marks to the case and tin dial but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mahogany case is in very good condition. The tin dial has been repainted. The brass-hinged bezel is in good working order, with some play to the hinge. The bezel-locking latch is present and working and prevents the bezel from opening. The mechanism is original; it has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order, keeping good time. As we are confident that you will have no problems with the mechanism, we offer a 2-year UK warranty whereby if there were a mechanical problem with the clock, we would collect it free of charge from you, have it repaired and returned free of charge to you. We also offer a 14-day UK returns policy if you were not happy with it or wanted to return it for any reason. Please also note, this clock has the original mechanism; it has not been replaced with a cheaper devaluing electrical battery operated kit that you see on some clocks.
