Antique Ansonia Westminster Chime Clock Impressive c. We have wound and tested it with our findings described in the text below. This neat old clock was made by the Ansonia Clock Company in NYC, N. USA during the 1920's. It has a large original Westminster chime movement that is complete.
It runs and chimes when wound, but may need cleaning in order to work best. In case you are not familiar with Westminster Chimes, these are the ones that play the'Big Ben' tune every 15 minutes; 4 notes on the quarter; 8 notes on the ½ hour; 12 notes at the ¾ hour; and then the full 16 note tune on the hour, followed by the hour toll, i.1 toll at 1:00, 2 tolls at 2:00, etc. It has a great old signed Ansonia silvered dial that is in very nice shape for a clock of this age, with a solid brass bezel and beveled edge glass crystal. It measures 21 1/4" wide x 10" high x 6 3/4 deep and weighs over 12 lbs. It also has a key and the original pendulum included. This helps ensure that the new owner will have a satisfying experience. Be very sure to save all packaging material if there is a problem. All sales are final (with the exception noted below). It is nearly impossible to find one in "mint" condition. If a clock has damage from misuse, it will be noted. If a clock is running properly when it arrives, that is about the best we can do. All sales for this type of item are final. We try to describe everything exactly as it is and if we do something wrong, we will make it right.
