Ingraham Beehive Mantel Clock, 1914

July 30, 2012 | By | Reply More

This Ingraham “beehive” shaped mantel clock has an 8-day time and strike movement dated 3 14 (March 1914). The movements in these Ingraham mantel clocks run very efficiently thanks to their deadbeat escapement.

The case is 13 1/16 inches tall and 8 5/8 inches wide. The dial’s minute track is 4 3/8 inch in diameter, and the minute hand is 2 1/4 inches long.

Ingraham mantel clocks differ from other American mantel clocks in that the pendulum is in front of the movement, thus they provide a cutout in the bottom of the case for hanging the pendulum.
