Ansonia Clock Co. “King”, ca. 1901.  This model is shown in two slightly different formats in Ly, Ansonia Clocks & Watches (page 448) from different catalogs, 1880 and then 1901. This is the 1901 version.  The walnut case is 23.5 inches tall with a clean finish.  The top finial is correct, the glass is likely original with good retention of the stencil, which shows ‘Ansonia’ on the lower left, along with an owl and a spider web. Not sure what that means.  There is a bronze figurehead and lion heads on the side pedestals.  The dial is signed paper in a nickel bezel with proper hands and slight wear.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed Ansonia and is running and striking on a cathedral gong, but the click stop does not catch when you try to wind it, so it will need attention.   There is a nice nickel pendulum and a label on the back.  $75–$150.
