Seller: avalon2111 (737) 100%, Location: Pickering, Ships to: GB, Item: 192552603248 Very rare shelf clock! Beautiful clock and a wonderful gift for anyone who collects and enjoys antique clocks! Shelf Clock, by Ansonia Clock Co., New York. Excellence label; Prize Medal Award, Paris Exposition, 1878, Eight Day Sussex Strike. The Ansonia Clock company printed the Paris Exposition on the inside of some of their clocks to highlight the award made to the company. All original pendulum & label (some wearing on one corner of label). In addition the time peace shows that it was patented June 1882. The clock and chimes are in good working condition. The sound of the clock "tocking" is a very relaxing sound and the chimes are a very nice too (I personally find some clock chimes a bit too imposing). The Ansonia Clock company was established in 1851 in Ansonia, Connecticut. The business was moved to Brooklyn, New York in 1878. The company flourished for a number of decades, before going into decline in the early 20th century. Will post to United Kingdom only.
