Ansonia “Georgia”, ca. 1892.  The Georgia stands just over 13 inches tall and 17.5 inches wide with a high-relief bronzed front and silvered figures in the alcoves.  The decorative metalwork has been professionally restored but the case itself was not, and it shows a few small chips on the top and edges.  There is a two-piece signed dial with cartouche numbers and fancy pierced hands, and a visible escapement with steel pallets.  There is a thick beveled glass in the sash.  The 8-day movement is signed with a rack and snail strike mechanism; it is running and striking on a cathedral gong without issue.  There is no rear door.  AAC sold a very similar Georgia last winter for $1600.  $1000-$1600.
