Ansonia Clock Co. “Macbeth”, ca. 1904.  A 14.5-inch cast spelter case, 15.5 inches wide.  The case has been painted, with some wear.  There is a two-part decorated porcelain dial with Ansonia at the bottom, behind a flat beveled glass.  The visible escapement has steel pins.  The 8-day, time-and-strike signed movement is running and striking.  Fontaine’s sold a near identical example in Feb 2021 for $225, and then sold the same clock a year later for $200, and then again last October for $175.  They should have quit while they were ahead.  $150-$225.
