The one you call a kitchen clock is the Ingraham Mascot. It uses the same case as the Ansonia King and was probably a special make by Ingraham. What I see looks all original. Here is a thread on the one I have.Thanx Burkhard, I believe it is the original glass, its not a gingerbread, not sure if there is a name for that style of kitchen clock? with the 2 lions heads & Ladys face at the top its a rather unique design. I really like it alot, in fact I think Im in love...lol
It has an 8 at the bottom? do you think it could be a japy freres? you can see traces of gold gilding. What should I use to polish it up? or should I just leave it alone? Thanx for helping me out here...The one you call a kitchen clock is the Ingraham Mascot. It uses the same case as the Ansonia King and was probably a special make by Ingraham.

Thanx Steven, yep they are a dead on match, IDK if the face is salvageable without it costing a small fortune, are they specific to that model or can they be found? it has part of the label on the back, with most of the name. It has such a majestic look to it the name doesnt seem to fit,, lol
The movement in the other appears to be French. If it is, a maker's mark on it may be the only way to ID who made it.
Yes, the trademark stamp says, S Marti, found a pendulum, a light drop a lube to the pivots, a tweak to the escapement, found the beat and shes tickin & a tockin, The bottom of the eagles wings still has alot of the gilding, but just a speck here an there is all thats left of it on the rest of the clock. I'll leave it be for now, but that brass would look good all polished up...The stamp on the French movement looks like S. Marti, about whom others are better qualified to tell you. Where is the gilding? Might be best to leave it be in any event.
