E. Ingraham & Co. “Corrugated Gallery”, 1870-1882. A 20-inch dial on a 26-inch chestnut case.  This model came in multiple sizes, with the largest having a 24-inch dial; the case came in walnut, chestnut, and gilt.  The glass is old and wavy, but it’s hard to imagine it is original.  The metal dial has been repainted; the backside holds the original touched-up dial.  The hands are original.  The 8-day, time-only, spring-driven movement is signed and running, and distinguished by the inverted crutch to allow a longer pendulum drop.  The pendulum stick was replaced in 1936, as noted in pencil on the stick and on one of several service notices written on the crossbars; the earliest one I see is from 1871 and shown below.  There is most of a label inside; the backside was covered with paper at one time. See Ly, Ingraham Clocks & Watches, page 133-135 for additional information.  This clock sold last fall at Schmidt’s Antiques for $800.  $800-$1200.
