Ansonia Clock Co., floor clock, "Antique Standing", ca 1901. Large oak cased clock standing 94" high, 2 inches less than 8 feet, and a goodly number of brass ornaments from head to toe. This is almost identical to the Antique Standing in our January 2003 Auction, Clock No. 1, that sold for $10, 725. The differences are; it was a mahogany case, and 100 percent original and untouched, while this one is oak and has had the black soot, smoke, and dust, partially cleaned off. A good amount remains in the cracks and crevices. Other than some "Nu Life", furniture polish, or similar oil feeder, you shouldnt need to do anything. The brass is all pretty clean, not bright, and looks good as is. Some folks want the brass bright, if so, the brass is easily removed for cleaning. Most pieces are held by two small brass nails. The movement is a chain pull up, 8 day, strikes a gong on half hours, and is running. The10 inch silver dial is etched and has black paint in the etchings. There areside doors to access the movement. The clock is all original and ready fora nice home. Ly-Ansonia No. 819.
