First among the clocks is this shelf banjo by Ingraham of, Bristol, Connecticut. The clock is made of stained birch and features a 4 1/2 inch Arabic numeral dial, brass embellished side arms, and a black and gold-painted lower tablet. The clock runs for a week on a winding and strikes the hours on a gong. It stands about 8 inches high. A keen observer might notice some striking similarities between this and the Ingraham "Nyanza" banjo clock I have for sale on my Clocks for Sale page.
It's not called a clock, because, technically speaking, a clock must mark the hours with a sound. This beautiful walnut regulator was made by the Ansonia Clock Co. around 1900. In addition to the walnut case, it features a glazed lower door marked Regulator A and a large 12 inch dial. This will also run for a full week on one winding. Easy to wind and set, this clocks is suitable for areas where hour striking isn't desirable. This one measures 32 inches in height.
I was thrilled to find these two clocks offered together. The on the right is a E.N. Welch schoolhouse clock in gorgeous rosewood. It runs for a week on a winding and strikes the hours. The one on the left is an older clock known as a "split-baluster shelf clock". We know it's older because it has a thirty-hour (runs for one day on a winding) wooden works movement. This will be the first antique clock with wooden gears that I've owned, and I'm excited to work on it. They measure 32 and 25 inches in height respectively. They will be sold separately.
