Ansonia Oak Westminster Chime Pendulum Wall Clock - One Owner Showpiece All Paperwork. This extremely well made wall clock was obtained from the original owner, having been hung on the same parlor wall for decades! Being rarely moved, the heavy wooden case is in outstanding condition! This clock was rarely wound, being used primarily for show. I hung and leveled the clock , using the built in "EZEE-SET" balance adjustment, then wound all 3 springs , one for the time, quarter hour, and chiming, winding them a few times each.After putting the pendulum in motion, I then listened to the "tick tocking", to make sure it was even. Over the course of a few days I observed the time keeping and adjusted the "bob" accordingly, in order for the clock to keep accurate time. This clock chimes in a 4-8-12 pattern, with the melody getting longer with each quarter hour. At the top of each hour, it plays a full Westminster chime, then counts out the time with corresponding chimes.
Both the time keeping and chiming worked well! The heavy wooden case acts like a well made speaker, resonating the chimes throughout the room!
This clock features a leaded, frosted, and beveled glass front, with the ornate pendulum "bob" peeking out of a diamond shaped window. I performed no maintenance or lubrication on this clock. I would suggest that this clock have some basic maintenance before putting it to work full time. My research showed that this clock was produced by "A House of Clocks" in Lynwood Washington.
This company ceased operation last year, due to a falling demand for high quality clocks. This is a well made clock, crafted in the USA! As the years pass, it will become a prized heirloom worthy of passing down to the next generation!
