Here is a beautiful vintage Ingraham Duplex Hermes mantel clock, with wood case featuring oak inlays and its original nicely working brass movement. The case appears to have its original finish which is in good condition showing only minor imperfections considering its age.

This style is often referred to as Tambour or humpback mantel. The clock is in excellent working condition and keeps perfect time, running smoothly. Both springs wind properly. Additionally there is a small port above the #12 for fast/slow adjustment. The clock chimes its two bars (commonly called a bim-bam chime) with a deep mellow cathedral tone on the half hour and hour, striking the corresponding number of times for each hour.

The brass chime bar is in perfect alignment and chimes clear and strong, although some minor readjustment may be needed after delivery. Included are the original pendulum and a winding key that fits all 3 adjusters. This is a large mantle clock measuring 22" long x 9.5" high x 5" wide, and it has a 5.5” dial. Complete operating instructions are provided on the original Ingraham label still glued completely intact and readable inside the back door. The back door opens, closes and latches as intended.

The E.(for Elias) Ingraham Clock Co of Bristol, Connecticut was founded in 1860, and son Edward took over in 1885. The label on this clock showing the company name of “E Ingraham Co” dates it to 1885 or later, as the company had a series of well-documented minor name changes at specific times in their history. I believe the Hermes line was produced in the 1920s. The company made pendulum clocks up to the start of WW2, but after the war made only electric models along with watches, fuses and timers before they were bought out in 1967 by a larger company.

This clock will be carefully bubble-wrapped, packed with an outer layer of soft foam, and shipped fully insured.
