    Help Identify Ingraham Wall Clock

    Still a very attractive case most likely with a Welch movement, i.e., Anglo American clock as Steven had originally suggested. Your comment about 'the same clock moving around' did give me a laugh as I experienced something similar years ago. Laurie aka Blindracoon

    Need Help with the Model Name on an Ingraham Kitchen Clock

    The Ingraham 'Aztec' in almost restored condition! Last time I took the 1st outside picture of the clock for posting, I noticed a couple of 'long dried drips' of what appeared to be some kind of polyesturene - and the ultra shine of the case was definitely not the original shellac. I had to go...

    You certainly won two attractive/clean American clocks! My take is pre-1900, i.e., 1880's-90's.

    Need Help with the Model Name on an Ingraham Kitchen Clock

    I found a Sessions 'elongated hole' minute hand key that actually fits on the Ingraham winding arbor.. OMG, It DOES strike on the half hour. Thanks Steven :clap:

    Need Help with the Model Name on an Ingraham Kitchen Clock

    I'm using the wire to push up the count lever so I'm not getting that brief hesitation for the hour strike, it's immediately going into hour strike mode. I assume that I would only get into the warning mode (just before the hour) if I'm manually moving a minute hand forward to the hour or using...

    Need Help with the Model Name on an Ingraham Kitchen Clock

    Thanks Steven! I appreciate the research/information, especially relating to the patent dates. It'll go to the 'shop' to ascertain whether or not there is a 'pin' for that 1/2 hour strike. This movement is so nasty dirty that it makes the Japanese movement I've got look clean.

    Need Help with the Model Name on an Ingraham Kitchen Clock

    A local importing company was closing its doors after many years here in the City. They weren't in the 'clock business' so it was odd that they had a handful of clocks including this Ingraham sitting in the warehouse. Prices were anywhere from $10-$25, so it was hard not to pick up this clock...

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    AHAA! Good thing I didn't reply with my first reaction to the half keystone :whistle: Seriously, there is some clock jargon that I don't quite get, so I was being careful. Ok, so ya got me on that one!

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    John, I've never heard that expression, half keystone, as it relates to the pendulum suspension? Maybe another member could chime in with his/her opinion. :???:

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    I've got a lotta clocks in my main room, all ticking away. My eyes always cast over to other working Japanese clock when I want to know the time. I didn't see a posting for your Japanese clock? C'mon and post it. I just picked up a little 20" Seikosha wall clock, at the least the movement is...

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    Yeah Kevin, I'm feeling more comfortable with that age range, too. Glad you like Japanese clocks as well!

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    I'm pretty sure I had a similarly styled pendulum suspension with an American or German clock so I wasn't surprised when I saw this one. Wonder who came up this clever idea?

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    Hi New2clocks, I appreciate you checking on that TM for me. The suggestions from both you and Chris make good sense as far as a timeline for this clock is concerned. The carving on the pediment definitely has a deco look to it. Reminds me of Japanese 'art' birds.

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    Doesn't sound bleary-eyed to me at all. I think it's a pretty good stab. As mentioned I have another rather large Japanese clock that had been in the prior owner's possession since 1961 when he found it in a closed down public theatre in Okinawa. It was also in storage for 25+ years. I bought...

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    Thanks Kevin, I appreciate that! I too have another Japanese clock with a bim-bam strike that I really like. If there isn't a category for Japanese clocks, maybe there should be :chuckling:. Laurie

    A Big 'Ol Japanese Eikosha Wall Clock - Era??

    No big deal ~ Seikosha is a much more familiar Japanese clock maker. With that said, I'd just like to get this Eikosha movement to tick-tock more than 3 minutes :banghead:
