Antique American Clocks                      January 2022


211.      $150

E. Ingraham Co. “Nabob”, ca. 1881.  This 22-inch shelf clock is advertised as “walnut with marbleized sash”, with a faux marble finish and gilding around the edges.  The drop finials are incorrect but look good; note the ebonized trim on the base.  The glass is old, the dial old paper, the hands correct.  The 8-day, time-and-strike movement is signed and running, striking on the wire gong.  A bright, shiny, and proper pendulum bob completes the outfit. There is a very dark label on the back.  No recent sales that I can find.  $150-$300.
