Ansonia Clock Co. side pieces/statues, “Purity and Vanity”, ca 1904. I have sold a truck load of Ansonia statues but I have never had this pair. I would say they were never pictured in a Seth Thomas sales catalog for Tran Duy Ly has a recent photograph of the pair in his Seth Thomas book, not one he found in an old sales catalog. They are 22.25 inches tall and have been professionally refinished, now in excellent condition. Ly-Ansonia, page 683. $300-$500.
Ansonia Clock Co. side pieces/statues, “Snowballing”, ca 1904. This is another pair I have never sold before. Both these sets of statues have been refinished and are “keepers”, if I only had a place to keep them. They are 19 inches tall and in excellent condition. Ly-Ansonia, page 666. $300-$500.
