RARE ANTIQUE ANSONIA NOVELTY CIVIL WAR "ARMY" CLOCK c1895 STACKED RIFLES & DRUM

The Ansonia Clock Company are renowned for their novelty clocks, of which there were many different styles/types. This is one of their rarer models, the "Army" clock as it was called way back at the end of the 1800s.

The clock features three stacked rifles mounted on a triangular base. Hanging between the rifles by its straps, is a field drum, in which is mounted the clock.

The three heavy cast rifles are beautifully detailed, complete with gilded rifle straps. The drum, like the rifles, is full of detail. Around the perfect ceramic dial and thick bevelled glassare studded a mass of "crystals".

As I hope the pictures show, it is in very nice condition but does have its issues. One of the bayonets is missing. It would have had a flag and a bugle attached to it and the clock is not reliable, but does run. It measures 10 1/2 inches to the tip of the bayonets and 5 1/2 inches wide.

From what I can find out, there were various versions on offer at the time. This is the "up-graded" version with enamel dial, crystals and it would once have been fully gilded (all options on the "standard" clock).

While not perfect...it is a perfect addition to any collection. Any version of this clock is rare. The crystal studded, enamelled dial one, all the more so.

If an extra photo or question answered will help, please just drop me a line.

Good hunting in 2013
