Antique American Ingraham Nyanza Banjo Wall Clock - Running:
Up for sale is a beautiful rare antique wall clock made by Edward Ingraham, the son of Elias Ingraham, founder of the 19th-century Bristol, Connecticut company that bore his name. Ingraham the senior won 17 patents between 1853 and 1873, all protecting the unique design of his clocks.
In 1844, he and his brother Andrew partnered with Elisha Curtis Brewster to form Brewster & Ingrahams. The firm would become E. and A. Ingrahams Company in 1852, Elias Ingraham and Company in 1857, E. Ingraham & Company in 1861, The E. Ingraham & Company in 1881, and The E. Ingraham Company in 1885. These minor name changes might seem overly fussy, but they provide a sure way to date the clock.
The face of this clock says The E. Ingraham Company, Bristol, Conn. USA
The clock is running very well, I wind it weekly; it strikes for the full and half hour.
Everything except for the key appears original.
