This is an Ansonia walnut Figure 8 (also called Ionic pattern) clock that was made from 1870-1915.

This one dating closer to 1880 based on some of the details.

The value of this clock is $200 to $300 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
