    Hi All
    I happened to see this clock with a dealer.. Please help me with its model name and approximate year of manufacturing.It is in good working condition, but missing the bottom calendar movement ! Is it possible to get the calendar movement ? PHOTO-2019-10-30-22-48-24 (1).jpg PHOTO-2019-10-30-22-48-24.jpg PHOTO-2019-10-30-22-48-58.jpg PHOTO-2019-10-30-22-48-44.jpg

    Your clock is Ingraham's Ionic Calendar. Tran Duy Ly's book on Ingraham clocks and his book on calendar clocks both show it from the 1886 catalogue. However, it seems to have been offered between 1877 and 1896. From the company name on yours, E. Ingraham Co., your clock would not have been made before 1884, the year the company changed its name to The E. Ingraham Co.

    Ingraham used B.B. Lewis's calendar movement in this clock, and I suspecr it will be quite difficult to find one. There might be one on eBay, I suppose. You also will need the dial and calendar hands, if you don't have them already.

    If you just put a piece of round glass in the bottom, and paint black and gold around the edge of the glass, you could make it a "Reflector" model. You can probably do an image search for "Ingraham Reflector" to see one. Only thing is, not sure if the pendulum bob would be centered on the bottom glass. Maybe the Reflector had the bob the same height?

    Only thing about the Reflector, it has a larger, more decorative pendulum.

    Here's a Reflector, although a previous owner mucked up the black and gold around the glass, probably by cleaning the back of the glass a bit too vigorously. Traces are still there. Of course making the OP's clock a Reflector leaves the day of the week "sub-dial" bit of wonder.

    If you do a search for "calendar dial" on Ebay you will find what i think is the correct dial and movement.
    Be sure to look closely and ask questions.
    I have no interest in the item or connection to the seller.
