    Was Wondering if anyone had a Ridgeway catalog.

    Hi, Rockin Ronnie. Yes, your clock appears to be model 9169, known as the "Sussex," although yours does not appear to have the "country oak" finish as described. (See attached scan). Model number 9169 would indicate that the model debuted in 1991, but the fact that it's in the 1997 catalog...

    Was Wondering if anyone had a Ridgeway catalog.

    Keep in mind the serial number method for dating a Ridgeway only works for those made ca. 1990 forward (perhaps mid-1980s), *not* to those made in the 1970s, 1960s, or earlier. Just an FYI. John

    Help Identifying Ridgeway Grandfather Clock

    LOL! I think that has been in my signature file for like 14 or so years now! Sad to say I've mostly lost my one-time clock obsession, and have even parted with several since then. Also, I've long since forgotten which clocks I'd already photographed/inventoried, so it looks like I'll never be...

    Crazy little clock

    Hello. I have a few Ridgeway catalogs (1967, 1972, 1977, 1980 and 1997) and yes, your clock indeed matches model 141, known as the "Miss Kelly," which appeared in the 1967 catalog (but may have been manufactured a couple/few years either side of that date). Attached is the photo from the 1967...

    Trying to identify my grandfather clock

    Hi, Jacque. Sorry for the delay with my response. (I only come into the Forum every couple/few months). I have a few Ridgeway catalogs (from 1967, 1972, 1977, 1980 and 1997) but unfortunately am not finding your clock. Your model number is rather unusual to me. Usually the 4-digit model...

    Help Identifying Ridgeway Grandfather Clock

    Hi, Aceolus. Your clock Model 119 is known as the "William Penn." I have a few sporadic Ridgeway catalogs (1967, 1972, 1977, 1980 and 1997) and yours shows in the 1980 catalog, so your clock would have been manufactured somewhere around that period. At that time your clock had a...
