This is a great example of the very rare Green Onyx crystal Regulators put out by Ansonia between 1900-1914, and sold new for a staggering $56!!  These clocks featured the great open escapement movement with porcelain dial.  And rather than all brass, the top and base are solid green onyx.  This clock when new costs a staggering $56!!  This particular clock is all original, and in amazing condition for it's age.  All the brass pieces have a mirror finish, and the dial is in good condition, with only one small stress crack, as seen in photo's.  The onyx is excellent, with only a couple tiny chips in 2 or 3 places, otherwise very solid and all there.  The movement is a 8-day open escapement, with chime on a coiled gong.  I have not inspected the movement further than checking both springs, and ensuring the chiming mechanism works fine.  It will not run however, seems to be due to needing of a cleaning, and a new ruby for the escapement (Right side ruby appears to have been broken, simple $12 part).  The bottom of the clock is marked with "1879, C176", not sure what this is referring too but it appears original, possible manufacture date of 1879?  Tran Duy Ly Ansonia Book shows a catalogue date of 1914, but this clock very well may have been offered many years prior as well.  I do try and get everything in my descriptions, but sometimes I do miss a detail or two, so please review all of the 37 pictures below for any information I may have missed in my description.

Auction Starts With NO RESERVE, It sells for what it sells for!!

I have been selling clocks for years and collecting for even longer!  On average ship out 10-20 antiques clocks each week.  
So you know you're clock is going to be shipped with care, and arrive exactly as you see it here.  
And for those chance occasions where the package gets beaten up in shipping,  no need to worry, all my packages are shipped 100% insured.

Please Read Prior To Purchasing
Clocks after shipping may need to be professionally cleaned, oiled, & adjusted.  This to due to dirt and other debris getting in the movement during shipping, and the many fine parts being shaken around during shipping could send the clock out of adjustment causing it to not run correctly, this doesn't indicate a broken clock, just a clock in need of adjustment. Though I may test the clock while I have it, and it will be running perfectly, adjustments may be required upon arrival after shipping.  Clocks are not tested for timekeeping ability, unless otherwise stated in the description.  I will be happy to help over e-mail as best I can, but I am in no way responsible for these adjustments and cleaning.  This statement applies to all clocks we sell!  Any clocks Sold AS-IS indicate that there are known issues with the clock/movement that will be specified in the description.  AS-IS clocks are expected not to run and need repair or replacement of parts unless otherwise noted in the description.  AS-IS items are sold with NO refunds or guarantees.
