Ingraham “Ducat” Parlor Clock ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here's a clock that's been on a special shelf in our great room since 1999. It came from a small clock shop that was closing. They had been in business primarily to reassemble and sell dad's extensive collection of clocks and parts, but the business supported several clocksmiths in the process. Now this wonderful clock has been displaced and needs a loving home asap. Priced accordingly. Yes, you read the price correctly!

Physical: The solid walnut case with appliqued brass trim on the crown measures 13.5"w x 20"h x 4.5"d and retains the original finish. The 6" diameter dial retains the original finish as well. The glass is original as is the factory stencil.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and gong-strike Gilbert movement has always run well and kept excellent time. It has just been lubricated and is ready to go.

Comments: Very pretty clock. At eighty-five dollars, this budget-priced antique clock is priced to sell quickly (actually costs us more to do this listing than the asking price, so you know we just want it to go to a "good home").

Seth Thomas City Series "Omaha" in Mahogany ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

We have just listed a batch of mostly Seth Thomas clocks for a local collector who is moving and who is more interested in finding "good homes" for his clocks than in reaping a big profit. Refreshing. His investment, your reward...!

This clock is from the "
City Series" that was so popular that we have a page about them in the Reference Library of our site. Check it out!

Physical: The mahogany case is in excellent age-appropriate physical condition and retains the original finish. It measures 10.75"w x 19"h x 4.5"d. The 5" dial is original to the clock and retains the original paint.


The damascened pendulum (very cool) is original to the clock as well. The original label remnant is present in the base of the clock.

Mechanical: The movement was removed from the case and cleaned in a heated ultrasonic cleaner by one of our technicians, then lubricated. As you can see in the photo above, it is clean as a whistle. It originally had an alarm function, but that has been removed (typical). The alarms were 1) annoying; and 2) did not shut off until they ran down and required the spring to be rewound daily. Enough already! The movement is in excellent running condition and features a very sonorous "cathedral gong" that you can see and hear in this YouTube film clip.

Comments: Nice clock. AMAZING budget-priced antique clock!

We don't list or sell
kitchen/parlor clocks like this.

We seldom have parlor (also called "kitchen") clocks... unless they come to us as part of a larger higher-end collection. Honestly, the supply of gingerbread clocks like the one to the left is so abundant and there's so little margin (most are worth $75-$150) that it's generally not worth the time it takes to list them... sorry.

But, if you have some high-end parlor clocks we are open to taking a look at them... there's plenty of space here if there's a reasonable profit to be made by selling them for you! Below is an example of a higher-end parlor clock of a variety that would be of interest to us.


We would have definite interest
in a parlor clock of this quality.
