I found this beautiful oak mantel clock at North Salem, Indiana at the Fall Festival one year. It was manufactured by the E. Ingraham Co. Bristol Conn. U.S.A.

    What would a clock like this be worth? I have one like this. It was my father's. Currently it does not run, there are no winding keys and the finish is not as nice as this clock. There was a repair to the clock in 1977 and I can remember it running after that. Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

    Sandy, I don't mean to be a smart alec but it's worth what ever you can get out of it. I've seen things book for alot and you can't get anywhere near that. That's why I made that comment at first. I love my old clock so someone would have to make it worth my while. Thank you for asking and I hope I have help.

    I also have one like this only looks more maple than oak. Would there be a reason why it does not have the Co. name on the face ? Also though it keeps great time, I am interested in finding out when should a clock like this be lubed ? It came to me with a small nail holding the minute hand on, is there something more authentic for the job ?

    Thank you Garry for stopping by. Why not contact a clocksmith for your questions? I'm sure he could answer all the things your asking me. Thanks again for stopping by! :-)

    Garry, officialfuel's advice is sound but to answer your question regarding the nail, the appropriate retainer is called a taper pin. They are usually made from brass but they can be steel. When used in combination with the right kind of washer, they compress the minute hand firmly on the minute arbor with a friction fit that keeps everything in place. Nails are usually loose and kept in place by bending. In my experience use of nails is an indication of "duct tape" maintenance and their use usually leads to a lot of minute hand slop.

    This clock is called a "Colby" from Ingraham's Mahogany Finish "College Assortment" cabinet mantel clock series. It is from circa 1915. That's a pretty prominent grain pattern for Mahogany. Do you know if it has been refinished? It almost looks like Oak. Perhaps Ingraham offered the model in different wood types. It's a very nice, clean example.

    Ooops, I guess it is Oak! :) Thanks for sharing.
