I had a thread a long time ago with this clock and I tried to find a name. However, I never was able to post pictures. Well Lets change that. This was a yard sale pick up many years ago for 40 bucks that wasn't working that I had restored. Anyone know the name of this clock? IMG_0530.jpg

I believe that Spaceman Spiff has some Ridgeway catalogs.

Spiff only checks-in to the forums now and then, so you may need to be patient. Or you can send him a private message.

Regards.

Do you have this one in the 1997 catalog?
Hi, Rockin Ronnie.

Yes, your clock appears to be model 9169, known as the "Sussex," although yours does not appear to have the "country oak" finish as described. (See attached scan).

Model number 9169 would indicate that the model debuted in 1991, but the fact that it's in the 1997 catalog indicates that it continued for at least another six years. If you can find the serial number in your clock, the first two digits would indicate exactly which year your clock was manufactured. (This method for dating a Ridgeway only works for clocks from the mid-1980s forward).

Hope this helps!
Sincerely,
John
