Ansonia Clock Co. porcelain cased clock, primarily a white clock with green designs all over and a Dutch windmill and house with some reddish tints, mostly on the roofs. It has a nice brass sash holding a beveled glass, one piece signed porcelain dial and a pair of Ansonia hands. On the back is the typical brass cover over the movement opening. The 8 day movement is signed, running, and striking a standing gong. No chips, cracks, or repairs to the 12 inch high case. $100-$200.


323.           $175

E. Ingraham & Co. long drop wall clock, “Bristol”, ca 1891. The 31 inch rosewood case is very attractive. The Ingraham catalogs say they made this model in imitation oak. Don’t think so.  The wood is dark, but clean and polished. I don’t see any of the usual edge dings, or other case issues you might see on a 120 year old clock case. The paper dial is a replacement, hands are correct, there is a paper label inside, and a super nice brass pendulum bob and stick. The brass is all polished bright including the dial ring and pendulum. The glass with the gold border is old. The movement is 8 day, time only, running enthusiastically. Ly-Ingraham #404. $200-$350.


324.           $100

E. N. Welch Mfg. Co. Forestville, Conn. parlor clock, “Donita”, ca 1882. The two labels on the back are obliterated but this is the same clock we have mentioned before that Welch made this model for the “Metropolitan Manufacturing Co.”. The movement is signed by Welch, the pendulum is one of Welch’s, as are the gongs, bells, and alarm movement. Some clocks have been seen that Ingraham made for Metropolitan at a New York City address. Apparently someone thought about cleaning the dark crusty case, note the very bottom that is partially cleaned, but decided it was more than they wanted to tackle. The walnut case is 27 inches high, the glass with “Father Time” and the “Artist” is excellent, and the original dial is slightly soiled. Ly-Welch #423. $150-$300.


325.           $100

“E. N. Welch Mfg. Co., Forestville, Conn.”, walnut parlor clock, “Eclipse”, ca 1885. Welch made this clock for either Metropolitan Manufacturing Co., or Baird & Dillon, both Chicago, Illinois companies. If you paid attention to the Welch clocks listed previous to this one, you will see that most of the labels are gone. I suspect a “collector” took the labels off so we would not know they were made for those companies. I have always felt the Welch clocks were worth more if made for Welch’s own distribution. This Eclipse model is identical to #317 above. It also has the same accessories, 8 day time and strike movement, alarm movement and bell, nice Welch pendulum and a very nice dial.  Ly-Welch, page389. $150-$250.



326.           $25

Seth Thomas, Thomaston, Conn. mantel clock, “miniature OG”, ca 1863. The mahogany veneered case is 17” tall, has some minor veneer problems, original glasses, door knob, and everything inside is also original and nice. Inside is the complete label, alarm movement, signed gong, original repainted zinc dial, correct hands, and the one day movement. A fair example of this early model. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 655. $50-$100.


327.           $80

Seth Thomas, Thomaston, Conn. mantel clock and City Series clock, “Athens”, ca 1880. In a walnut case standing 17 inches tall, plain but attractive. It is all original inside and out, clean and polished. The dial is original as is the nickel accessories, bell and pendulum. The dial rings are brass. The one day movement is running and striking the nickel bell as is the separate alarm movement that also rings on the same nickel bell. The glass may be a replacement. Note the winding hole for the alarm is in the bottom of the dial board. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 185. $100-$200.


328.           $75

Seth Thomas, Thomaston, Conn. City Series clock named “Troy V. P.”, ca 1879. The V.P. supposedly stands for visible pendulum however most of the City Series clock have a pendulum visible but no V.P. is after their name, and some have the V.P. after the name and the pendulum isn’t visible. Explain that to me. This nice little walnut cased clock is 15 inches tall, clean and polished. It has the original signed dial with nickel dial rings, nickel bell and pendulum. The 8 day movement is running and striking the bell each hour. Ly-Seth Thomas, page 210. $100-$200.


329.           $275

Ansonia Clock Co./Henry J. Davies /George A. Jones & Company- walnut parlor clock. Notice that the clock closely resembles some of the Ansonia parlor clocks. It has an Ansonia 8 day time and striking movement and Ansonia dial. It is apparent that Davies designed this clock and sold it thru the George Jones company, before or while he was plant manager of the Jones company. There is not identifying label of the maker but there is a very nice label outlining the contents of the clock, Ansonia movement, etc. The case and all attachments are original including the glass and pendulum no doubt designed by Davies. It is running and striking properly. See Ly-Ansonia for similar cases. $300-$500.
