Antique Clocks/Antonia mantle clock
I have just received an Ansonia mantle clock from my mother - the clock belonged to my great grandmother. I have not been able to find a photo of this particular model. The label says 1878 Brooklyn NY Eight Day Ostler strike. It still works and appears to be in very good condition. I am not interested in selling since it is so much a part of my childhood memories. I do wonder if it is valuable enough that I should insure it - looking at some of your other answers I am thinking it is most likely worth less than the family has thought - probably less than $500?
I could not find this model anywhere. This is a typical oak gingerbread or kitchen clock from about 1900. A lot of these have just a flat board front with a design pressed into it. Yours has some attached pieces which makes it a bit better than most. Value $100-200.
