I am enclosing 2 pics from the 1901 Ansonia catalog.  Most of what you might want to know, including the original price, is there. Your statue is missing a book behind the chair. The statue is made of spelter or white metal. If a magnet sticks to the clock case, it is cast iron. If not, it is spelter. Currently the clock & statue is worth $300-500.
