Ansonia Clock Co. “Library Ink” inkstand clock, ca. 1907. A 5.5-inch tall by 8.5-inch wide cast double inkwell clock with a gilt or Syrian Bronze finish (not sure which). Much of the gilding/bronzing has been worn off or lost. The porcelain dial has a gilt center ring and is signed Ansonia at the bottom; it sits behind a beveled glass. The hands are proper. This is a one-day backwind and backset; it is running without problem. The inkwell lids are hinged, I don’t believe there were glass inserts. There is a penholder at the front. No sales records that I can find. $100-$250.
