Vintage Meiji Clock

Posted by Vickie Conner on

According to what I’ve read, Meiji (pronounced “My Gee”) Clock Company was located in Nagoya, Japan. An affiliate of New York’s Ansonia Clock Company, Meiji was founded in 1895 in order to produce Ansonia style movements for clocks destined for the Far Eastern market. The Meiji Clock Company quickly progressed into clock production.  It was among the last to manufacture mechanical clocks in Japan.

This particular Meiji clock is an estate find.  I don’t know enough about clocks to test them, but I love the look and history of them.  Read the paperwork glued to the back of this one.

The markings mentioned are visible on the face of this clock.

 My hope is that someone will purchase this clock, get it running again, and time will tick on.
