    Info on this Clock?

    Hello All! I got this little clock awhile back. At the time, it was utterly filthy, spray bombed gold, and covered in nicotine tar. After doing my best to clean it up it looks decent and I was surprised to find it runs well enough to be used! I tried using Internet archives of Ingraham catalogs...

    Seth Thomas Adamantine Clock

    Thanks Jim! It seems the “Adele” had a relatively long run. Mine was made in 1899 and I’ve seen them in catalogs as far forward as 1909-1910. Any idea when the model began production and when it was phased out? Unfortunately I don’t have the book yet.

    Seth Thomas Adamantine Clock

    Hello All! It’s been awhile since I’ve been here. Anyway, I finally got this Seth Thomas clock back after having the movement serviced and it’s now up and running. The date code says this clock was made in January of 1899. Does anyone know anything else about this clock like the model, or have...

    $ Ingrahams alarm clock

    So I actually did acquire a Vim alarm clock for $10. The seller said it could be wound, ticked, and the alarm worked. The outside is utterly filthy. I figured I would take the chance for such a low price. I’m starting to clean it but have a few more questions. These clocks have no pendulum, but...

    $ Ingraham Pacific

    Thanks for the advice Brian! Although I do like these clocks, some of eBay’s prices are pretty insane. The more I’ve looked though, I have found several for very cheap prices on offer up or Facebook marketplace. Side note, we had a seller doing something similar on our local Craigslist. He...

    Ingraham Pacific

    Right, by rebalancing I meant to the innards like the article said.

    Ingraham Pacific

    Steven, thanks a lot for the excellent reply! That actually really puts my mind at ease. I’m glad to know nothing is wrong with it. I suppose in that case I should try to rebalance the clock and then see what I can do about cleaning. When I first bought it, the case seemed to have sand in it...

    $ Ingraham Pacific

    Really? On eBay self clocks usually go for around $100 or so. Are those overpriced then? I’m really new at this and like shelf clocks, so this interests me. Maybe the Pacific model just isn’t worth much?

    $ Ingrahams alarm clock

    I’m interested in purchasing an Ingraham Aalarm clock to wake me up every morning. XD However, before I look to seriously at buying, I first wanted to ask the experts for their take on an acceptable price range. The kind I would like are the turn of the century to WWI era nickel plated peg leg...
