Ansonia IronMantelClock with an Ansonia Statue Topper
Maker: AnsoinaOrigin: USA Clock Model: Carlisle
Age: 1914 Reference:AnsoniaClocks & Watches,Ly, Page 289, #1059/Page 650 #2772 Size:19" highx17" wide x7" deep (approx. with statue)
This is the Carlisle model and was part of Ansonia's "C" line models, meaning every model began with the letter C. The statue is also an Ansonia topper and is called "Cavalier."
This clock is out of the estate of a collector, who had just completed the restoration of this clockbefore he passed away. This one is gorgeous and ready to place on your mantel. This clock displays much nicer than it looks in the photos.
The originalblack enamel finishhas been recently hand buffed to it's original luster, shiny, bright and gorgeous. There areonly a few very minor edge nicksto the finish, mostly along the top front edge (see close ups). There are no breaks in the iron case itself. Any imperfections areextremely minor and do not detract from the beauty of the clock.Most of these Ansonia iron clocks almost always have the original finish in poor condition or repainted, so this one is a treat with its original black finish. The mark below the dial is a reflection not an imperfection.
The original metal trim,side ornaments, the heavyfeet, and statue topperwere done in a gilt tone.The paint used is very nice and really makes a statement on this clock
The statue is not attached to the clock. Ansonia sold many of their statues as optional toppers for their clocks.
The original, ornate dial has been hand buffed.The numbers have been repainted and some wear to the brass finish. The dial has been clear coated to seal in the finish. The glass is a replacement and it is held in place with the original retaining ring. The original bezel has been buffed to a nice shine. The hands areoriginal and have been repainted with a semigloss black paint.
The back door is a correct replacement. The owner did not have time to mount it prior to his passing, so I reattached it using the same hard rivet/washer style that Ansonia originally used. Most people incorrectly use screws or pop rivets. If I had not of mentioned that the back door was a replacement you would not have known.
The original 8 day time and strike movement issigned. The movement strikes on a heavy coiled gong and strikes on a bell on the half hour.Themovement is in excellent condition,and has been keeping perfect time*(see below).According to the relatives of the prior owner, the movement was cleaned and oiled just a month ago and from what I see, it looks very clean. The pendulum bob is original and the key is a replacement.
