Ansonia Black Iron Mantel Clock

September 9, 2011 | By | Reply More

This Ansonia mantel clock has a black enamled iron case, and was made around 1890 – 1910. It has Ansonia’s 4 pillar rectangular movement that uses thinner (weaker) mainsprings than most other American clocks. This reliable movement was used in many Ansonia mantel clocks.

The case is 10 7/8 inches tall, 11 1/2 inches wide, and the dial’s minute track is 4 1/4 inch outside diameter. The length of the minute hand is just under 2 1/8 inches.

This clock has its original, thin mainsprings: both are 3/4 inch wide and 0.0155 inch thick.

Repair job 5545. Pivots polished, installed 11 bushings.
