Striking! Antique Art Nouveau Ansonia 8 Day Mantle Shakespeare Clock Ptnd 1882
(Pun Intended) Art Nouveau Antique Ansonia Shakespeare 8 Day Mantle Clock, Terrific Display Quality & Excellent Working Condition! Patented June 18, 1882, Approx: 16″ L x 14.5″ H x 7.25 D, 20.6 lbs, Key Included. Stamped “Manufactured by Ansonia Clock Company New York United States of America” on dial face with Ansonia Diamond A on face mark as well. Acquired from Selective Antique Collector’s Estate. This Ansonia Shakespeare 8 Day Mantle Clock is truly amazing with a “10” display pop quality and working very well. Features William Shakespeare with pen in hand and Macbeth and Hamlet on paper scroll to his the left by his knee. Very detailed metal work in Art Nouveau style just grabs the eyes. We only gently dusted it off after acquiring and it was up and running without effort. We have let it run for few weeks just to see how it operates and it kept really good time, chimes on the hour and once on the half hour. The clock dial face and glass are exceptional as is the gold tone finish, which we believe to be original, but with 135+ year old item, you can never be 100% sure if there have been touch ups or other. There are a few places of surface wear and scuffs to finish as shown in pictures but they are pretty minor overall. The interior looks very clean as shown in the pictures. Please review all pictures taken for your consideration and use zoom feature if needed. We photographed in a number of light settings and angles to try and capture the appeal of the clock. Certain to make a bold statement in any room, this is a classic mantle clock from Ansonia. The detailed elements in gold tone finish really grab the eye. The porcelain clock face if very nice which is tougher to find in the older clocks like this as you may know. It is a nice size clock for most mantles at 16″ L x 14.5″ H x 7.25 D. It is a sturdy 20+ pounds. Ansonia made a figural Shakespeare clock in a few designs, some with marble base and some like ours in all cast metal Art Nouveau style. Many of these mantle clocks have a double face on dial, but we found some others which did not. If you are not experienced with these antique wind up pendulum clocks, YouTube has some really great instruction guides and use videos for Ansonia clocks (and others) as well. And always be careful with delicate mechanicals on clocks of course. It will likely need winding to operate as we have let it run down a bit before placing in inventory.
