Beautiful antique Victorian Ansonia figural Iron Mantel Clock with the Roman God of Commerce, Mercury seated to the right of this beautiful timepiece.

This is what is known as a figural clock and was made by American Clock Company, Ansonia. Ansonia was formed in 1850 in Ansonia, Connecticut but factories were later moved to New York in the late 1800’s. Ansonia was one of the largest American Clock companies of the 19th Century, and sold millions of different clocks.

This iron mantel clock is quite amazing for its level of detail and beauty. It was made in circa 1880 in the New York Factory and is marked in the face of the clock and in the works. It displays the God of Commerce, Mercury, with a winged helmet, Roman dress, shield and armor. Mercury is associated with communication and travel, as well as commerce, trickery and thieves!

This clock has been beautifully restored. It keeps very good time and strikes on the half hour and hour. The movement is quite unusual, being visible from the front face of the clock, and is quite mesmerizing to watch.
