This is an Ansonia TORN model porcelain mantel clock with an 8-day movement , 1/2 hour gong strike movement and a painted metal dial. The floral case is glazed a cobalt flow blue with gold highlights and painted flowers; most of Ansonia's porcelain clock cases were made by Royal Bonn porcelain of Germany. This model was also made in pink and green palettes. The date of the clock is 1882 to 1902 and has a value of $125 in working condition.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
