Rare Antique C 1914 Ansonia 10 Day Alarm Clock Mini Tambour Shelf Mantel:
I have up for sale a beautiful vintage / antique patent dated 1914 Ansonia Alarm Clock. It is a 10 day clock ,super rare for an alarm clock and hard to find for any type of clock for that matter. I purchased it years back but never really ran it, I just liked the look ,so now when I listed it on is the first time, that I realized it was not your simply one windup movement, not even an 8 day , it day 10 and its running strong - just on one full windup.This is the only time that I have seen this particular Ansonia and can not find the given company name for it. I checked the ansonia clock website and this model is not shown , possibly it is rare , in the least hard to find. The clock stands approx 7" tall and 6-1/2" across , 3" deep . At first blush it appears to be more of a miniature shelf clock but when you look at the back you then notice , its an alarm clock.It is in Very Good Original As Found Condition! It is very handsome clock , has the original finish . I believe the wood to be mahogany. There is one subtle crack to the right side of the wood case, the surround section - approx between the 2 and 3 o'clock numbers . This is a tight split , done many many moons ago. To be honest I have had this clock for many years and finally decided to sell it, I never noticed it until I was giving it a good inspection for doing the listing. The dial face is good ,some light discoloration on the lower half. There is abit of oxidation on the bezel ring , no big deal but noted for the ultra fussy.
