Descrizione articolo


Ansonia Clocks & Watches by Tran Duy Ly. 752 pages - 8 1/2 x 11 and 3061 quality illustrations and photographs. Smyth sewn hardbound on white gloss enamel text with 2004 Price Update $89.50. From the cover depicting the crystal regulator "Regal" against a background photograph of the Ansonia Clock Company factory, this new edition of ANSONIA CLOCKS AND WATCHES (1998) is a spectacular book. Its 752 pages are crammed with 3061 illustrations depicting every single type of clock made by Ansonia as well as many of their additional products - side pieces, top ornaments, candlesticks, watches and more. The concise history is beautifully illustrated and heavily referenced. The bulk of the text is divided into 48 sections that include all the types of clocks made by Ansonia, as well as brief sections on movements, movement parts, and electroliers. An extensive 49-page section is included on sidepieces, top ornaments and candlesticks. The final section illustrates watches made by Ansonia from 1894-1920. This section includes not only catalog illustrations but also photographs of actual watches owned by private collectors including, in many instances, the original shipping boxes and their labels! This attention to detail is repeated throughout the book. In many instances photographs of actual clocks are given next to their catalog illustrations. If variations appeared in a clock throughout its production history these are shown side-by-side, again with photographs of actual clocks. Close-ups of dials, movements, parts of movements, cases, case backs and marks on porcelain clocks are all shown. Details to consider when attempting to determine if a clock figure and base are a marriage are concisely presented.
