Antique American Clocks January 2022
Ansonia Clock Co. “La Corsica”, ca. 1901. A 12 x 14-inch porcelain case in light blue with a visible escapement on a signed, flawless porcelain dial behind a beveled glass. The case is clean and bright, with some light crazing on the top. Note the paired mythical birds on the front. The 8-day Ansonia movement is running strongly, striking on the hours and half-hours on the cathedral gong. Horton’s sold this clock in 2015 for $680. $250-$500.
