Antique 1901 Ansonia "devonshire" Mantel Clock, Rare Bronze Case, Key, Item #543:
$600


This is not a small clock, approx. 11" wide x 12" tall x 6" deep and weights almost 20 pounds. It is all bronze, with a beautiful sculptured face. It runs great, which is amazing considering the 1901 age for this piece. You are looking at a clock that was crafted 112 years ago for the rich and famous of that era. This is a one of a kind antique that has survived the ages. (Ansonia key included)

In 1838, brass movements had mainly replaced wooden and cast iron movements in most clocks due to the volumes of supply of rolled brass. In 1844, metal dealer Anson Greene Phelps formed the Ansonia Brass company in Connecticut, to supply the expanding clock business - nine companies were producing clocks in Connecticut.

In 1850 the Ansonia Clock Company was formed as a subsidiary of the Ansonia Brass Company by Phelps and two Bristol, Connecticut, clockmakers, Theodore Terry and Franklin C. Andrews. Terry & Andrews were the largest clock manufacturers in Bristol, with more than 50 employees using 58 tons of brass in the production of about 25,000 clocks in 1849. Phelps decided to get into the clockmaking business to expand the market for his brass, while Terry and Andrews got access to better quality brass at better prices. They had resultantly sold 50% of their business to Phelps, and moved the business to Ansonia.
