190.    $250

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.
