6060   Ingraham Ionic figure 8 wall clock in “as found” condition

This clock does need a little work but it is priced accordingly. These cases usually have a grain painted front to resemble rosewood and they have true rosewood veneer on the sides. On this one the finish is so dark you cannot see the graining or the rosewood so a bit of cleaning would be a big improvement. On the very top of the case the veneer has split and lifted so it needs to be glued back down. On the back edge of the lower portion a veneer piece about 1” by 6” is missing. The lower bezel has come apart but all the pieces are there and they need to be glued back into place. The upper portion of the backboard has been replaced.

Both of the glasses are original but there is a fair amount of flaking in the black and gold tablet. The dial paper has yellowed and it is signed “Alvin Laurence”. The hands and pendulum are original.

This is an eight day timepiece, meaning it does not strike the hours. The clock is running but the movement is very dirty and clearly has not been serviced in many years. 

28" tall with a 10" dial.     SOLD

6061   Waterbury “Bahai” figure 8 wall clock

This case has a grain painted front to resemble some exotic wood. The sides of the case are probably rosewood veneer but the finish is so dark it is hard to tell. The case is very dry and it would benefit greatly with some cleaning and a coat of polish.

After the photos were taken I decided to clean the dirt off of the dial and the look has vastly improved. Both glasses are original but the black portion of the lower glass has quite a bit of flaking. It retains the original hands and pendulum plus it has two fairly good labels on the back.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong. It is running but the movement is due for a cleaning.

22” tall with a 10” dial.      SOLD

6062   Ansonia “Regulator A” wall clock

Often this model has a great deal of veneer problems but this one is much better than average. The case is mahogany with a thumbnail sized piece of veneer missing on the upper corner of the left side and a smaller one on the point at the bottom. It has a clean original finish and nothing needs to be done other than to hang it on your wall. Below the dial is an ivory plaque and whatever was printed on it has long worn away.

The dial paper is signed and in very good condition with just a very minimal amount of discoloration. It has the original hands, pendulum, Regulator A glass and a good label.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong. The movement probably has not been serviced for a while but it is currently running and striking properly.

32” tall.    $265

6063   Seth Thomas Globe wall clock

This clock has a nicely refinished solid oak case which is in good, sound condition and has no faults at all. The original painted dial was rather worn and someone wanted to put on a new paper dial. Rather than put it over the original dial, they put it on the back side then rotated the dial so the winding hole would lineup properly. Thus, the original dial is still there and you can have it restored if you wish. I should note that when they rotated the dial they did not get it exactly right so they adjusted the movement a bit and now you can see some extra screw holes.

This clock has the original hands, pendulum and glasses plus a good label.

This is an eight day spring driven timepiece. The movement is quite dirty, someone did a poor repair on the verge crutch and it will need a new suspension spring. With a little bit of effort you could bring this clock back to a more original condition.

29 ½” tall.    SOLD

6064   Welch, Spring & Co. “Verdi” wall clock

The Verdi has always been a very popular model. Partly because of the quality and partly because the seconds dial adds a bit of animation. This clock has a rosewood veneer case which has been very nicely refinished. I counted three quite small veneer chips but overall it is in very good condition. It has the original painted dial which is in very good shape though the seconds dial has been renumbered and that job was less than perfect.

The brass bezel is loose and it needs to be soldered back onto the dial at the hinge. The hands and pendulum are original though the hands have been painted black There is a good label on the back.

This is an eight day clock with hourly strike on a gong. This model used a club tooth escapement. It is running but has not been serviced for quite a while.

31” tall with a 12” dial.    SOLD

6065   Ingraham oak school clock

This clock has a well refniished solid oak case and is in great restored condition. The hands and dial paper have been replaced while it has the original hands, Regulator glass and a label. The clock also comes with some of its history starting in a school in Walpole, New Hampshire.

This is an eight day timepiece and it is in good running order. 

25" tall with a 12" dial.     SOLD

5101   Atkins Clock Co. "Octagon Drop XX" hanging clock

This is a rather early clock dating to about 1861 and it was produced for only a very short time. If you look in the NAWCC 2004 Supplement book on Atkins clocks by Gregory and King you will see this clock on page 69. They list this model as being very rare.

The case is rosewood under the original finish which has darkened and has an alligatored look. There is a ripple molding around the edge and usually there are some missing pieces but this one is complete. The only case fault is that the knobs for both the bezel and the lower door are missing. The actual latch portion is still there.

The dial has been professionally repainted and looks very good. The hands and pendulum are original while the label is missing and the stencil on the lower glass is worn.

This is an 8 day timepiece and it is running.

25” tall with a 12” dial.     SOLD

3110   Waterbury "Arion" School Clock

This clock is in excellent, original condition. The case is solid oak with pressed designs, a clean original finish and no case damage at all. The signed paper dial is very clean and legible. It retains the original hands and pendulum plus it has a perfect label on the back.

This is an eight day timepiece. It is running well but the movement is overdue for a cleaning.

24 inches tall with a 12 inch dial.    SOLD

4069   Ingraham school clock with U.S.G. Harness Oil advertising

This clock has a very nice refinished case of solid pressed oak without any chips or case damage. The advertising dial does have some discoloration but all the lettering is complete and it is signed “E. Ingraham & Co. Manufactured in the USA”.

It comes with the original hands and pendulum plus the lower stenciled glass of “E. Schmidt & Co. Manufacturers Baltimore, MD”.

4070   E.N. Welch calendar school clock

This case on this clock is grain painted to look like rosewood and that now is under a darkened coat of the original finish. If that finish were cleaned the graining would be much more visible. Other than that, there are no case problems or damages.

You can see that the painted dial has a considerable amount of flaking and loss of paint. The hour and minute hands are the originals but the calendar hand is missing. Both the glasses are the originals with in the lower having an interesting stencil of a horse.

This is an eight day timepiece. It is running but the movement is very dirty and it should be cleaned before the clock is run.

25 inches tall with a 12 inch dial.   SOLD
