A Brass Cased Ansonia Eight Day Mantle Clock

Engraved with a presentation inscription, dated for 1920

15cm High

The clock is working, losing time and perhaps needs a service.

"The Ansonia Clock Company’s roots lie in the Ansonia Brass Company, founded by Anson Greene Phelps in 1844. Phelps supplied brass to Connecticut clock manufacturers until 1851, when he joined forces with two powerful clockmakers, Theodore Terry and Franklin C. Andrews, to create a clockmaking company of his own. Terry and Andrews, who had a successful clockmaking business in Bristol, sold half of their business to Phelps in exchange for cheaper brass materials. Thus, the Ansonia Clock Company subsidiary was born.Many Ansonia clocks are eight-day movements, meaning that they only need to be rewound every eight days. "
