    Hi, Myckeal Disharoon Sorry to be so long in replying. I have several old Ridgeway catalogs and try to come on here from time to time to help people identify theirs.

    Ridgeway Tempus Fugit Grandfather Clock (Gravely Furniture Co.)

    Hi, Gmarsz01 I have several old Ridgeway catalogs and try to come on here from time to time to help people identify theirs. Your clock appears to be model #127, known as the "Lady Lexington." It appears in both my 1967 and 1977 catalogs, so your clock dates from somewhere around that period...

    Help identifying my clock

    Hi, dragonswild I have a few Ridgeway catalogs (1967, 1972, 1977, 1980 and 1997). Unfortunately I'm not finding your clock anywhere in my catalogs, and am unable to identify it. Its existence just seems to fall somewhere between the dates that my catalogs cover. Sorry I wasn't of more help...

    Seeking information on Ridgeway Grandfather

    Hi, Okra Actually, I usually only check in every couple of months. But this summer I forgot to take my clock catalogs north with me, and I was gone for six months! (Oops). And now I've been back home for a month before logging on here. (And can't remember how long it had been that I'd logged...

    Ridgeway grandfather clock

    Several things are very odd to me regarding this clock. First of all, the model number 140 is not matching up with the "look" of this clock at all. And the sticker showing it being model 140 also shows a date of 3/69, but this looks more like a 1980s or 1990s clock to me. But I'm no expert...

    Ridgeway Clock

    Hi, jfelber1. I have a few old Ridgeway catalogs. I believe the F/W stands for Fruitwood, and movement E stands for "three weight driven, 8 chime rods, Westminster chimes, Big Ben gong." Model #130 is one of those rare numbers where Ridgeway strangely used the same number for two different...

    Inherited A Ridgeway Grandfather clock

    Unfortunately, sorry, I don't. I haven't been involved with the buying & selling of clocks for several years now. Also, at one time this forum had a rule that we aren't to discuss values here. (However, I believe they created a separate page or thread for value discussions. Not sure exactly...

    Ridgeway Curio Grandfather Clock

    Hi, vw0000guy, and welcome to the forum! Thanks very much for sharing this info! I'm printing this page and keeping it with the rest of my Ridgeway materials. The fact that it's known as model 9050 indicates that this particular model debuted in 1990, which fits perfectly with NM Desert 505's...

    Ridgeway Grandfather Clock Purchase

    Hello, ZABH. (I received your private message as well but figured I would reply here). Your clock is beautiful! Unfortunately, I'm not finding it in any of my catalogs. My catalogs are not fully inclusive, being from the years 1967, 1972, 1977, 1980 and 1997. My 1977 catalog contains model...

    Random Buy

    Hi, StoicDetective, and welcome to the message board! (Sorry for the delay in replying. I only come into the forum once in a while to check if anyone is seeking Ridgeway info). Firstly, "Tempus Fugit" is simply Latin for "time flies" and appears on many clocks regardless of who manufactured...
