Picked this Ingraham Kitchen clock last week at a local flea market.......but unfortunately someone had removed the mechanical movement and replaced it with a quartz movement. The label on the back of the case is marked "HOME".....would anyone have any information/picture of this clock? Thanks

I could not find this particular clock in Tran Duy Ly's Ingraham book, but the style seems to place ca. the mid 1890's to the early 1900's. Shouldn't be too hard to find a movement. Movements suitable for a kitchen shelf clock show up on Ebay from time to time.

I think you need to look real close in the Ingraham book I did find one wood case clock with the same glass in it dated 1889.
I think the back board is a replacement and thus you must look for the other parts of the clock to date it at 1896 with the bottom part of the clock design.

It does have a variety of Ingraham characteristics. I have found the glass on a couple of clocks in the Bouquet line (1896). Also, the side trim is shown on the Bouquet A. The design on the base is found in the Big Six line (1896), as well as on the Westminster (1915). What appears to be the same door design appears on the Spring Line (1907). (All dates from Tran).

The top trim was hardest to match and seems awful plain. I could find no real match. I'm not sure if that is what Don means by "backboard."
