This is an auction site but you need to sign up for the site to see what they sold the clock for. I see it there and it was sold back in 2016.


Here is a site that you can check out for the value of this clock. You will need to know the date it wsa made or the numbers on the back of the clock. Then look it up here and you can find the value of the clock.

I would like to find out more information. My grandmother left it to me. I believe she said it from the late 1800s or early 1900s. I want to find out the maker, age, and value.

Yours looks like an antique, German Junghan's (the brand) clock. Probably walnut. Probably from the late 1880s or early 1900s as you think. Not sure if it is real or a knock off...hard to tell by the photo and only an expert can probably give you the facts. I am not an expert (like an appraiser) just a collector and someone who loves all things old and neat!


They are all over the place in value and mostly sell in Europe (so if you are there that is a good thing!). The values on eBay range from 50-150 US dollars. There may be some higher, this is an average.

The value depends on it if works, has all the original parts, no cracks in the glass etc.

I strongly suggest having a reputable antique dealer look at it and value it (ask for insurance value) which will be higher than retail, but will give you starting place where you can then take best offer if you are trying to sell. I would not try to sell it online (too much of a hassle) so once you are comfortable with the value in your area, see if one of the dealers will sell it for you on consignment!

Post back what you learn!

Can anyone tell me anything about the history of this mantle clock please? All I know is it is called an Ansonia mantle clock. It has recently been professionally refurbished and I just wanted to know a little about it and of course any valuation.

Ansonia clocks - really hold there value! Although I did not see one like yours, eBay has many of this brand starting at $200 - $1000's. Very sought after brand.


Another site - has Ansonia clocks starting at $300. If you has a vintage dealer in the area, maybe they can give you a local value/appraisal!

I am wondering if anyone knows anything about this wall clock. There is no label or name on it anywhere. I would be interested in manufacturer, age, ballpark value. Thanks!

Without a label or other markings visible, if you can take the back off the top part, there might be info inside where the workings are that might help identify it. I looked at several sites and didn't find any clocks really close in design, but a few were a similar type: a key-wound pendulum calendar clock.


If you remove the back and find anything further, post here what you find, and maybe I can get better info for you. Good luck.

These look like nice clocks but unless you can provide an individual picture of each full clock I do not feel we can fairly give you any indication of value.


Pictures should show the full clock - top to bottom and a close up of the full top/face as well as ANY writing/names/numbers on each clock. It should be very clear which clock the names/marks belong to. Measurements also help with smaller clocks and you need to state any information you have on age, where they were purchased (state), family history related to the clocks.
It is very difficult to sell and ship a grandfather clock and almost impossible to sell if you not know the brand and condition of the clocks. Most sellers will only list their clocks as 'local pick up only' as shipping can be over a hundred dollars as only an experienced clock mover will know how to pack and ship the clock without damaging the 'works'. Are the clocks in working order?

Where you live will have a big impact on the value of your clocks as there are areas that are 'into' having unnecessary items in their homes while others will be like yourself - no room and probably no desire to keep them - much less buy one.

I'm sorry but I do not have anyway to research your clocks without pictures and information but maybe someone else will be able to help you.
Maybe you can find some information on this link:
