770.           $50

Ridgeway floor clock, made in Germany, ca 1970’s. The 8-day movement is running and signed “Gravely Furn. Co. / Made In Germany”. It strikes Westminster chimes, is running, and has a strike-silent lever. The plain case is light walnut, and there are no frills or extras except the finial. The two doors catch with a magnet and the back over the movement is removable. That is a nice extra. The pendulum and pendulum rod are brass. The dial is very attractive with cast brass spandrels on the corners, a silver dial ring, and silver globe above the dial. $100-$200.


771.           $100

French marble clock with a signed 8-day bell striking movement. The dark green marble case is 10 inches high and 9.5 inches wide, with brass beading around the outside edge of the front and an applied brass ornament below the dial. The bowed porcelain dial has some chips around the numbers 10 and 2, has original hands, and a bowed and beveled glass in the brass sash. The 8-day movement is a typical French movement, round, with bell attached. It rests on four brass feet. $150-$250.


772.           $25

E. Ingraham & Co. wood cased mantel clock, “Crystal”, ca 1880. This case is a little fancier than other octagon top clocks Ingraham made. The door is gold paint covered with a really nice glass. There are some small paint chips on the door. The old dial is dirty but complete. Inside is a black paper label covering the backboard. There is some loss of paper, maybe 25%. The walnut case is 15 inches tall, complete and original. The one day movement is running and striking the coil gong. Ly-Ingraham #868. $25-$50


773.           $100

“Manufactured by W. H. Scott for John M’Menomy, 197 Chatham St. New York”, a 4-column weight clock, ca 1850. Someone, maybe him, made a great many of these 4-column clocks for other companies, including Seth Thomas, and others. The 30-hour brass movement in this case is not signed. It takes two wafer size weights to power the movement and sound the gong each hour. It has a complete and very nice paper label, wood dial, period hands, and pendulum. The 26-inch-high walnut case is smoky black, and has never been cleaned. It is running and striking correctly. Note, it is missing the lower tablet. $100-$150.
