I’ll get to this one after I finish the Gledhill Brooks….maybe!

America/Ansonia, the Beautiful?

Ansonia is an American company which makes this clock a rarity in my collection. However, unlike the ornate kitchen clocks with wood carvings only a mother could love, this long drop case is of a more traditional and, if you ask me, elegant style.

Despite age, the face is in fairly good condition. These are the type of clocks, along with mantel clocks, that one could pick up fairly cheaply at auctions, even just ten years ago. Now, even the availability of these in those types of settings is becoming more and more rare.
