It is a genuine antique from circa 1914 andcan be found on page 146 of noted authority Tran Duy Ly's "Ansonia Clocks and Watches" reference book.
It features a visible escapement and four glass panels to clearly view the inner workings and pendulum swing of the clock.
This is a beautiful example of the Prism in excellent condition. It's about a century old and has been used. It is not mint. There are a few little dents and faint scratches, but you won't find many examples inbettermechanical andesthetic condition as this clock is right now.
