Here’s an example of the Ingraham “Doric” shelf clock. Ingraham made this model for years, around the 1860s to 1880s. There is a patent date on the dial pan in which is lightly stamped and unreadable. The lower glass originally had a reverse painting.
The movement is 8-day and strikes the hours on a coil gong. The gong isn’t original, but is an old one I installed (the clock had a small cuckoo clock gong when it came in for repair).
The case is 15 15/16 inches tall and 9 inches wide. The paper dial’s minute track is 4 1/8 inches diameter, and the minute hand is 2 7/32 inches long. Someone has painted the brass dial pan with gold paint.
Repair job 5685. New strike ratchet gear installed. New click rivets installed. New mainsprings, Colonial Clock Shop 280-19-003 (3/4 by 120 inches, time spring 0.0155 inch thick, strike spring 0.0159 inch thick). Polished the pivots, installed 10 bushings, re-faced the verge, installed new pins in 3 pinions.
