E. Ingraham Antique Wood Mantel Clock Mantle Shelf Regulator Wind-up 1800's:
E. INGRAHAM Antique WOOD MANTEL CLOCK Mantle Shelf REGULATOR Wind-Up 1800's
An antique E. Ingraham Mantel Clock dating to the late 1800's.
We are pleased to present this antique E. Ingraham Mantel Clock for your consideration. The Clock is housed in a beautiful dark wood cabinet, and has ornate metal trim on the front. This is an "old-school" wind-up Clock that gets its power from two springs, one for the Clock and one for the chime. A key is included to wind the clock. We date the Clock to circa 1895.
The Clock measures 10-3/4 inches high, 10-1/4 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. It weighs 7 pounds 1 ounce. The face has the maker's name: THE E. INGRAHAM CO. At the bottom of the face is text MADE IN xxxxxx CONN. USA. where the xxxxxx is a city name that appears to be purposely obscured with white paint or a similar substance.
Physically, the Clock is in quite good shape with only some minor issues. There is a small dab of white paint on the right side of the case. The face has some spotting and minor wear. The metal trim on the left side is broken (see last picture for close up), but retains its position (the broken off section is still secured to the case by one of the small nails that holds the trim), and doesn't look broken unless examined closely - this is easily corrected with a spot of glue. Wood surfaces show little wear and are quite nice on a Clock of this age. We rate the overall physical condition as very good.
After receiving the Clock for review, I installed the pendulum. The pendulum is easiest to put in place through the opening in the bottom of the case. Starting the pendulum swinging was a little awkward (reaching underneath the cabinet from the side or back), but once started, the Clock ran without difficulty. Over the course of a few hours, I found the Clock keeping time within a minute or so of the computer time (there is a control on the face to speed or slow the Clock). The Clock chimes the count of hours on the top of each hour, while there is a bell that rings on the half hour (the bell actually rings at the 32 minute mark, so likely requires an adjustment). While the Clock is currently running, as an antique timepiece, we offer it in as-is condition. Cleaning and/or oiling will be required periodically to keep the Clock in good running order.
This is an unusual looking late 1800's E. Ingraham Clock in exceptionally good physical shape. It would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
