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, it 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”

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 price.

Seth Thomas "Empire 17" Crystal Regulator ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Seth Thomas made a whole series of crystal regulators from very plain rectangular boxes to a few fancy styles like this one. They numbered them from "00" to "1000", though there were only about 87 styles, mostly plain. This is a beautiful exception!

Physical: The brass case retains a fair amount of the original gilding and has patinated beautifully. It measures 17"h x 8.375"w x 3.75"d. It is in excellent physical condition with original, unchipped beveled glass panels.

The 4" diameter porcelain dial, in the style of French clocks of the period, has hand-painted floral decoration and is in excellent physical condition. The delicate hands are beautiful and original. The original pendulum has metal (faux-mercurial) cylinders inside the glass tubes.

Mechanical: The eight-day round time and gong-strike No. 48N movement has recently been lubricated and is in excellent running condition. Click this link to read the movement description from the 1907 catalogue.

Comments: Many crystal regulators of this period have been highly polished or re-plated. It is a lovely thing to see one that has aged gracefully and that beckons attention simply because of its elegance. This is such a clock.

It has been in the collection of a gentleman who is moving and just wanted to make sure some of his clocks go to "good homes" where they will be as cherished as they have been in his. Do you have a "good home" that is ready to adopt this lovely orphan?

Ansonia “Fulton” Gallery Clock, c.1914

Original Catalogue Drawing: Ansonia "Fulton" Gallery Clock, c.1914 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

(original catalogue drawing)

 

Because of the name on the dial below the maker signature, our best guess is that this Ansonia gallery clock came out of a hotel somewhere. This particular model was made in both mahogany and oak, and in eight- and 30-day configurations. The eight-day version pictured here originally cost $16.75 in 1914.

Physical: The mahogany case, which measures 18.75" square x 4" deep. appears to have the original finish and is in excellent physical condition. The glass is not original. The 14" diameter dial does bear the original finish.

Mechanical: The eight-day movement has been professionally cleaned and serviced and is in excellent running condition. The pendulum appears to be original to the clock as well.

Comments: Nice clock. Bargain price. We enjoy a similar clock that hangs in our great room; you will, too... so call us!
