For your consideration is this 1920s E. Ingraham wood kitchenette clock. Bristol, Connecticut based E. Ingraham Company was a well-known American clock and watch manufacturer. Elias Ingraham founded the business in 1831, and it had a significant impact on the clockmaking industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The E. & A. Ingraham Company was established in 1831 by Elias Ingraham and his brother, initially specializing in the production of brass clock movements. The partnership, though, didn't last long, and Elias carried on the enterprise by himself. The business was well-known for making a range of clock styles during the 19th century, including mantel clocks, wall clocks, and shelf clocks. The E. Ingraham Company experienced significant growth in the latter half of the 19th century, growing to rank among the biggest clock producers in the country. The clock industry, however, faced difficulties as the 20th century rolled around because of shifting consumer preferences and the emergence of substitute timekeeping devices like wristwatches. Like many other businesses in the sector, The E. Ingraham Company had to change. They started making things besides just the usual clocks, like radios and watches. Despite these initiatives, the business encountered rising competition and financial challenges. Their operations were further hampered by the Great Depression. The company stopped making clocks in 1950 and started concentrating on making cases for radios and televisions. Finally, in 1967, the business permanently shut its doors. The clock case is made of oak paneling and shows the original paper on the back of the clock case telling the reader the clock style, how to set it up, how to regulate the clock and where it was made. The face of the clock shows a white, black and bronze color scheme with the face of the clock being white, the numbers and hands showing black and the outer and inner circles show bronze coloring. The bottom of the face reads in black lettering, "Made by The E. Ingraham Co., Bristol, Conn., U.S.A.". The clock shows fair condition with wear to the case and internal components. The clock chimes when the hands are moved manually but the hammer does not strike the bell. The clock measures 4 3/4" L x 13 5/16" W x 13 5/16" H. The clock weighs 5 pounds.
