Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


123.     $200

Ansonia Clock Co. “Hermes”, ca. 1904.   A beautifully refinished figural, 15 inches tall and 16 inches wide.  No missing pieces, the signed dial is practically perfect behind a thick beveled glass, but the hands are incorrect.  The signed, 8-day, time-and-strike movement is running and striking, although the strike hammer needs adjustment. A nice figural; in Greek mythology Hermes was the god’s herald (messenger) with a winged helmet and sandals, and was called Mercury in Roman mythology.  $200-$350.
