Elias Ingraham was the founder of the Ingraham Clock Company that had its origins in 19th century Connecticut. He was one of a handful of luminaries in the clock business back in the day. Ingraham and other clock makers of that time period were really the inventors of the American clock industry. I can remember many hours staring at a clock just like this in my grammar school room praying that the school day would soon end. Those hours seemed like an eternity. Here I am, many years later adoring the look of these old school house clocks. This one is particularly nice and for those who do not wish to have a loud chime in the home, this one is perfect, since it is time-only. The octagonal shape is a classic and it has an easy-to-read dial that is contrasted by blued steel ornately pierced hands that indicate the hours and minutes. The case is oak and it has a very nice rilled inner boarder that frames the brass bezel. The brass pendulum bob has very defined concentric circles that give it a handsome appearance. It is an eight day, time-only clock, circa 1910, in good running condition. This clock has a very impressive appearance on the wall. It comes with our famous one year warranty for parts and labor, so you may buy with confidence.
