Ingraham Banjo Clock With E Pluribus Unum Emblem Great Face Eagle Finial Runs For Sale
Ingraham Banjo Clock with E Pluribus Unum Emblem Great Face and Eagle Finial Runs
Here is a nice looking Ingraham banjo clock for your buying consideration. The clock is in very nice condition. I would guess it is from the 1920s to 1930s, but you be the judge. This clock is a time only, no strikes or chimes. The clock is in running condition.
There is still a somewhat legible paper label on the top back of the clock. and then some sort of other operation label on the bottom I have not seen before. See the pics. The operation label is pretty fascinating as appears to show the steps the clock went thru in the factory as the case was being finished, sanded, stained lacquered, etc.
Beautiful looking wood case, most likely made of mahogany. Some nicks and dings to the case, but nothing major for a 80 to 90 year old piece. What is really neat as well is the key has Ingraham emblazoned on it, so might still be the original key which having bought and sold clocks for 15 years, that does not happen very often. The brass trim pieces on both sides of the center of the clock still have much of their finish on them.
Nice brass bezel over the clock face. The glass is there, but a little loose in the bezel, so will need some attention. Antique white clock face with gold colored raised numbers. The clock hands on this are nicely detailed, match and look appropriate to the clock. The eagle finial still has a good finish on it, a little loose where screws into the case, so could use some wood glue. The hanger screwed onto the back of the clock does not look original or appropriate to the clock, but it works.
The banjo clock is 31" tall, by 9" across, by 3.25" wide. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
As can be expected
when dealing with an antique clock, some adjustments may be needed after
shipping to get the clock re-running correctly again as they can be very
delicate. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks
before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the
patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not
