Ansonia Clock Co. “Queen Elizabeth”, ca. 1901.  This is the later and most common version of this popular model.  The 36-inch oak case has an old, dark finish; the finials look original.  The door glass is period/original, the dial is signed paper, clean but with wear.  The hands are period and correct.  The signed 8-day, time and half-hour strike movement is running, rather weakly, and striking on an Ansonia cathedral gong.  There is a good label on the back.  A possible replaced tailpiece, but it looks original from the front.  AAC sold an oak Queen Elizabeth in 2023 for $272.  $200–$300.
