Ingraham Drop Octagon
I found this E. Ingraham Drop Octagon 12-inch drop, 25inches high clock at an auction. But it is missing the dial, pan, glass & bezel. I see that clock suppliers have different sizes available, but what size would fit this case? Thanks

Re: Ingraham Drop Octagon (RE: Wayne C. Anderson)
On my Ingraham 25" drop octagon, which looks much like yours, the dial pan measures 13" diameter (outside rim to outside rim), with a 13" bezel (inner rime to inner rim), and a 12.5" glass. Paper dial is about 11.25" diameter. Mine is from the 1930's; so I can't say if my dimensions would exactly mirror those on yours.“If one tells the truth, one is sure, sooner or later, to be found out.” - Oscar Wilde

Yep! Same one I had for a long time. No longer have it but a very nice clock. I called mine, "ropey oak". Outer bezel can pretty much be determined by measurement of space available to fill the opening. Pretty much the same for dial. I believe mine had common spade hands.

Wayne.....I'd watch eBay for a parts clock or loose parts. They come up from time to time. The repro stuff stands out like a sore thumb..IMOP.
