HORTON'S ANTIQUE CLOCKS JULY 2019
Ansonia Clock Co. hanging clock, “Parahyba”, ca 1904. Many of Ansonia’s cheap kitchen clocks made in the early 1900’s had Spanish names. This one has several meanings, i.e. a Brazil river just to name one. Google the name and find out. I wanted to call the wood oak but cannot. The clock books just call it, “dark wood”. I would guess it to be some South American wood. Stands 24 inches high, complete and original with original painted glass, signed dial, signed gong, pendulum – not sure, and 8-day time and gong striking movement that is running. Complete label on the back. Ly-Ansonia #734. $100-$200.
