The Ansonia Clock Company was formed in May 1850 by Anson G. Phelps, Theodore
Terry and Franklin C. Andrews and was located in Ansonia, which was then a
village in the town of Derby, Connecticut. An interesting note is that the
Ansonia Clock Company was one of only 3 companies which exhibited their wares in
the New York World’s Fair in July 1853. They exhibited mainly their cast iron
cased clocks with paint and mother of pearl inlays. In the mid 1920s, the clock
company was sold to Russia’s Armtog Trading Corporation with US workers moving
to Russia to train those employees. In 1948, the company folded and then in
1969, the Ansonia trademark was re-established and today manufactures clocks as
the Ansonia Clock Company, Inc. This clock is an early figural clock in the
bronze style. This open escapement with jeweled pallets is in the figure of
Mercury. This Mercury figural clock is featured in Tran Duy Ly’s book on Ansonia
clocks and is highly collectible. It is listed in that book for $1600 in the
2004 price guide.
