Can anyone identify this gingerbread clock? I don’t know it’s age or origin.

This clock may be a marriage of an Ingraham movement and an Ansonia case. The case appears to be an example of the "Buffalo" model by the Ansonia Clock Company. Tran Duy Ly's 1998 Ansonia book shows a line drawing of this case from the 1901 Ansonia catalog. David, Owen.or

David is correct. The link below takes you to a group of 4 clocks shown on antiqueclockspriceguide.com. The clock on the left is the same as yours. Search terms were Ansonia Buffalo. Click on the images to enlarge. The right-hand image is a picture of the label.

Thanks Steven and Owen. I thought it was much more recent since It looks like it was cut with a Jig saw, it keeps accurate time after a minor adjustment to the pendulum.

FTR, there were two clocks called Buffalo made by Ansonia. In addition to the one in this thread, there was an earlier clock in black walnut with a completely different case style. Tran's book shows it from the 1894 catalogue. Yes, occasionally, the clock companies recycled clock names.
