Antique American Clocks                     JULY 2024

136.             $400

Ansonia Clock Co. “No. 506”, ca. 1910.  Just under 17 inches tall in Royal Bonn porcelain with baby blue coloring and pink roses on the front.  There is light crazing on the front and top but no discoloring.  The gilding is well-retained, the dial glass is beveled, and the porcelain dial is free of cracks.  The hands are correct.  The 8-day time-and-strike movement is signed and running, a bit reluctantly, and striking on the standing cathedral gong.  This is an uncommon model with only one recent sale, in 2022 for $560.  $400–$600.
