This beautiful wall clock called the “Queen Elizabeth” was made by the Ansonia Clock Company. It was introduced around the early 1880s and made until at least 1901. This model was available in black walnut, mahogany or oak; and had an 8-day time only or time and strike movement.

The clock pictured here has an oak case and 8-day time and strike movement. The paper dial is a replacement. Height 37 1/4 inches, width 13 1/2 inches, the minute track was about 7 inches in diameter on the original dial.

Job 5005. This clock has both original mainsprings.

  • Time: 3/4 wide by 0.0168 inch thick
  • Strike: 3/4 wide by 0.0175 inch thick

It has the larger, older type movement with 5 7/8 by 3 5/8 inch plates. The plates are 1.45 millimeters thick.
