Ingersoll pocket watch & alarm clock, circa 1933 - 1936
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.
Someday I might have to look for the wristwatch.

    Got to say I like these pieces, and I've seen these listed as Big Bad Wolf several times through out my life. I just wanted to add that the correct title of the these is "Three Little Pigs" as pre the advertising and the original packaging. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice combo Dave. This is the first time I see a BBW pocket watch with hairy hands! I thought Ingersoll only made one PW version with the winking eye animation in 1934. By the way, there is a cheap (so far a the bidding goes) wristwatch for sale on ebay,

    still have 3 days to go, take a look. Regards. George

    George,
    Thanks for the link for the WW.
    I acquired the matching alarm & pocket watch, as a pair, at an estate sale many years ago. I don't recall ever seeing this particular pocket watch dial listed before. It is a nice pair to have.
    Thanks for looking & sharing,
    Dave

    Thanks for edit of photos Dave, Grouping looks good together., Question, Is this clock an Ingraham? looks like one in the styling and knob on top, possible Bayard styling also.

    Kerry,
    I haven't had it apart. I don't know how to remove the alarm knob on top. It does not unscrew and afraid to pull to hard on it. The dial says Ingersoll, but it might be re-cased.

    Dave, the alarm indicator on the dial makes me think it has and probably with one of those type of movements indicated in above comment. on second thought it might be a Smith's version as it would also say Ingersoll , maybe George can show some insight, I know nadda about the Smith's(English made) alarms, but pretty sure George might have an idea as to the styling of those types. We will see if he chimes in.

    Dave & Kerry, this could be a Westclox. You can compare the back of clock with photos the link. However, I suspect the dial and hands are reproduction but I could be wrong.

    The Smith version of the same period has a different looking base and the top button is different.

    George & Kerry,
    Posted photo of back of clock.
    Dave
  15. geo26e geo26e, 7 months ago
    Thanks Dave for the back photo, will need to research a little more and get back to you but I still suspect it is a version of Westclox

    Kerry, could you post another photo of your clock so that the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock. Just want to see the relationship between the nodding head and the wolf body and compare with Dave's clock dial. Cheers!

    George will edit and had one "Blown-Up" shortly. Dave, I've been looking through several references and haven't found this style back, several close but none with the 3 nut supports, Mystery continues. will find one if George doesn't beat me to it lol

    Hello Dave, well I'm back and the bearer of bad news, George's hunch was correct and it's a fabricated piece. The clock is a Gilbert Alarm Clock, probably a"Raven" model from the late 1950's-early 60's. and the dial has been applied and possible "Distress" to appear older than it is.

    Dave, i think this is your clock! Kerry Sherlock has done an excellent job!

    I was going to suggest the clock is a version of the Robert Shaw range as it has a very similar back arrangement but Kerry is spot one!

    For comparison, here is a Robert Shaw : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290916136131&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en

    Thanks Kerry & George for the information.
    It is not bad news as far as I'm concerned. Very few dollars invested (less than $50.00 for both alarm & pocket watch), and I like the fact that they are matching. If I had a lot invested in them, I would be a little disappointed.
    Great detective work and very appreciated.

    Dave, you're welcome and as far as investment go, I buy "cheap" lol I have several pieces that are non-authorised and wouldn't trade them for the world. Again , I liked this from the first day you posted them and still do.
  24. pw-collector pw-collector, 7 months ago
    Thanks Kerry, I always appreciate your input and vast knowledge on these character pieces. I love them and I'm happy to have them in my collection. They have "character" !
    Dave
  25. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Very Well Said Dave, lol
  26. geo26e geo26e, 7 months ago
    They are very collectable pieces in their own rights. Love the pairing with same dial/hands. The wolf looks scarier than Kerry's somewhat!
  27. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Agree with George with them collectible in their own right, scarier, well I don't know about that, LOL .
  28. geo26e geo26e, 7 months ago
    LOL Sorry Kerry, I thought Dave's wolf was 'scarier' because the dial background has faded and the hairy wolf stood out more than yours!
  29. pw-collector pw-collector, 7 months ago
    George & Kerry,
    Is the pocket watch original?
    Dial is marked Ingersoll & movement serial number is 78797287 which puts it in the 1933 range.
    Dave
  30. kerry10456 kerry10456, 7 months ago
    Never know this variant to be used in the pocket watch. I'd say no
  31. pw-collector pw-collector, 7 months ago
    George said he hadn't seen this dial either on the PW.
    ONE-OF-A-Kind!!! Rarer! LOL

    This Ingersoll Big Bad Wolf series of Clock, Pocket Watch and Wristwatch is very interesting because they are all different. The hairy arms hour & minute hands however are exclusive to the clocks as far as I know.

    Thanks Manikin for the appreciation.
    Thanks George for the added information.
