"IGNATZ" or "The Flying Pendulum Clock"

Reproduction, Circa: 1960

The Horolovar Company
Bronxville, New York

 

Catalog No. AS011.4  Additional Pictures

This is a reproduction of an Original 1885 novelty clock by Jerome & Co. (Which became the New Haven Clock Company.) The original version is truly a rare find as relatively few of them were made. They were sold mainly to clock shop owners and jewelry store operators as an attention-getting device for their storefront window display. Hence, very few were sold to the general public. Recently, an original of this model sold at a very reputable auction house for $1,500.00. Now after only 40 years since its introduction, the reproduction "IGNATZ", complete with shipping box and papers, is also becoming a scarce, if not rare, heavily sought-after collector’s prize.

Movement: A 30-hour, Time only, movement made in Germany for Horolovar Company. It is a ‘Novelty Clock’ and a notoriously poor timekeeper. The key and time-set knob, which normally remain attached to the clock, are original and are included. It has been fully serviced in our shop and is ready to put in your home, in your office, in your shop window (for resale?) OR given as a 'timeless' gift. It’s a great conversation piece wherever it is displayed.

Case Style and Trim: Rectangular in shape, it is made of white wood stained mahogany. It sits on stamped brass feet and sports stamped brass decorative trim on the sides and front. All parts of this reproduction are original. The paper face has a 2 ¾ inch diameter chapter ring, black Arabic numerals and black steel hands. The polished brass bezel and sash are in their original condition. The round, flat glass is in excellent condition. This choice item is being offered complete with the Original shipping box, a copy of "IGNATZ, The craziest Clock in the World" by Charles O Terwilliger, Jr., a booklet entitled, "About The Horolovar Flying Pendulum Clock", and a spare pendulum. A great party ice breaker or a unique gift for that person on your Holiday gift-list who has almost everything.

Catalog No. AS061 Additional Pictures

MOVEMENT: An original, Trade Marked New Haven, 8-day Time & Strike movement. It has a count-wheel strike train, which is fitted with a push-wire, time/strike correction feature. The "push-wire " allows the owner to synchronize the hour struck with the time shown whenever they get out of sync. This can be done without the help of a clocksmith or the need to take the clock off its shelf.

The decorative design pressed into the crown, side-pieces, and base provides an interesting array of shadows and high lights. The original, ornate pendulum can be seen marking time behind the window below the face. The design on the glass is not a decal. It is an authentic, reverse-painted reproduction of the design actually provided in the "Camden Line C". The white face, which shows some wear, is painted on a metal dial-pan; has black Roman numerals; a 5" diameter chapter ring and is fitted with spade-style, blued-steel hands-all original.

"REGULATOR A" 

Circa 1920

Aichi Tokei Denki K.K.
Made in Japan by Aichi Clock Company

 

Catalog No. JW001  Additional Pictures

MOVEMENT: An original, Trademarked, 8-day Time & Hour-Strike movement. The trademark for the face and the movement are the same. The count-wheel strike train is fitted with a time/strike correction rod located on the left side and can be accessed through the bottom door. Whenever the time/strike gets out of sync, this feature allows the owner to advance the strike until the time and hour struck agree, without the help of a clocksmith. This movement only strikes the hour on a coiled authoritative, yet mellow Gong Wire. The large, brass-clad pendulum bob is original. A replacement single-ended key is included.

CASE STYLE and TRIM: This is a classic ‘drop’ style wall clock with its original dark mahogany finish in good condition. The case has been cleaned and polished. Not withstanding what it says on the door, this case more closely resembles Ansonia’s "Regulator C" than it does the "A" style. The large polished brass pendulum can be seen through the lower door—a great conversation starter.

The original off-white, painted-metal face is trademarked with the logo of the Aichi Clock Company, which was founded as the Mizuno Clock Company in 1892 in Nagoya. The name was changed to Aichi. The trademark on the face is made up of a black circle, inside of which there is a shaded letter "C", superimposed over the "C" is a white letter "A". The chapter ring is 8 3/4-inches in diameter with black Arabic-numerals—all clearly legible. The original black spade-style hands are painted steel; they have been refinished. The round wooden bezel is made up of 8-sections, holds a round flat glass, and has a chrome-plated brass sash, which accents the chapter ring. The reverse-painted "REGULATOR A" on the glass in the door appears to be original and is in excellent condition. The original paper label is mounted on the backboard inside the clock. It gives the manufacturer’s information and instructions for operating the clock. It is printed in black letters on a gray paper, is written in English and is still in very good condition. This clock has been fully serviced in our shop and is ready to put in your home, in your office, in your shop for resale OR given as a 'timeless' gift.

We are offering you a bit of history with an international flavor from the early 20th century that is original in nearly every respect, is in sound condition and is ready to take up its time keeping duties when it arrives.

Dimensions: 13 1/2" wide at the bezel x 21 1/2" high x 4 3/4 inches deep at base.

The "Golden Hour"

circa: 1964

The Jefferson Electric Company
Bellwood, Illinois

 

Catalog No. ASE010.2 Additional Pictures

The Golden Hour first went into production on December 2, 1949. It was the first and most popular of all the clocks manufactured by the Jefferson Electric Company. This one has the words "patent pending" on the maroon colored plastic bottom cover, which identifies it as one manufactured early in the clocks history. Later models with the maroon bottom cover show a patent number (2,642,713) and on still later models the bottom cover is black and has no patent number.

Movement: The clock is powered by a small electric motor located in the base. According to the information on the bottom cover it is "UL" listed, operates on 115 volts AC @ 60 cycles and has a power rating of 2.5 watts. Replacement motors are available and we usually have one in stock. The motor on this clock is new. All of the other moving parts have been cleaned and serviced in our shop. This beauty is ready to put in your home, in your office, in your shop window (for resale or as an attention getter?) OR given as a 'timeless' gift. It’s a great conversation piece wherever it is displayed.

Case Style and Trim: The Golden Hour is often referred to as the ‘mystery clock’ because the hands seem to float in the center of the chapter ring with no apparent connection to any spring or motor. It has a 7 3/8" chapter ring. The body of the clock is a 2-piece alloy casting with 24-karat gold plating. It has been cleaned and polished and the plating is still intact. The hands and related gear assembly are made of brass. The ‘Golden Hour’ is a functional, vintage timepiece that is at home in almost any décor. A great party ice breaker or a unique gift for that person on your Holiday gift-list who has almost everything.

Dimensions: 5 7/8" wide x 4 ½" deep x 9" high.

JEFFERSON GOLDEN MINUTE

 circa 1958 
(date stamped 1-28-58)

The Jefferson Electric Company
Bellwood, Illinois

 

Catalog No. AS069  Additional Pictures

In 1951, while still enjoying the great marketing success of both the "Golden Hour" and the "Golden Helm", The Jefferson Electric Co. introduced the smaller version of the Golden Hour and named it the "Golden Minute". The basic design of this model and the way it operates is essentially the same as the Golden Hour. And, at first look it appears to be just a smaller version of the Golden Hour. However, on close inspection one finds that it is nearly identical to its older cousin, the Golden Helm. For example, it is the same size, the same shape (minus the nautical motif) and uses the same type of motor; and, it has the same dark red or maroon-colored, plastic, almost triangular-shaped cover that closes the bottom of the Golden Helm. However, it is inscribed, Jefferson Golden Minute, Electric Clock, Catalog No. 580-121.

MOVEMENT: The clock is powered by a small electric motor located in the base. According to the information on the bottom cover the motor is "UL" listed, operates on 115 volts AC @ 60 cycles and has a power rating of 2.5 watts. Replacements for this type of motor are very difficult to find. The fully functional motor in this clock is date stamped 11-74 indication that the original motor has been replaced. It still has its original power cord, which is in good condition. All of the other moving parts that make up this clock have been cleaned and serviced in our shop.

CASE STYLE and TRIM: Like its larger, older relative, the Golden Hour and its close cousin, the Golden Helm, the Golden Minute is also often referred to as a ‘mystery clock’ because the hands seem to float in the center of the chapter ring with no apparent connection to any spring or motor. It has a 5 1/8-inch, brushed, silver-colored chapter ring with recessed, white-filled numbers. The body of the clock is a 2-piece alloy casting with 24-karat gold plating. It has been cleaned and polished and, the original plating looks almost new. The shape of the hands is similar to those on the Golden Hour. Their visibility is enhanced by the use of a white stripe down the center of each hand. The hands and related gear assembly are made of brass.

Dimensions: 6-inches wide (across the diameter of the face frame) x 5 ¼-inches deep (allowing for the cord) x 7 ¼-inches high

JEFFERSON GOLDEN VIEW 
circa 1958

The Jefferson Electric Company
Bellwood, Illinois

Catalog No. ASE031  Additional Pictures

In 1956, while still enjoying the great marketing success of the Golden Hour, the Golden Helm, and the Golden Minute, The Jefferson Electric Co. introduced the Golden View. The basic design of this model and the way it operates is essentially the same as the Golden Minute. The dials are the same size and they use the same type of motor. A stamped, metal rectangular-shaped cover closes the bottom of the Golden View’s mahogany base. However, it is inscribed, Jefferson Golden View, Electric Clock, Catalog No. 580-151-001.

MOVEMENT: The clock is powered by a small electric motor located in the base. According to the information on the bottom cover the motor is "UL" listed, operates on 115 volts AC @ 60 cycles and has a power rating of 2.5 watts. Replacements for this type of motor are very difficult to find. However, a NEW, fully functional motor has been installed in this clock. It still has its original power cord, which is in good condition. All of the other moving parts that make up this clock have been cleaned and serviced in our shop.

CASE STYLE and TRIM: Like its older relatives, the Golden Hour, the Golden Helm, and its close cousin, the Golden Minute, the Golden View is also often referred to as a ‘mystery clock’ because the hands seem to float in the center of the chapter ring with no apparent connection to any spring or motor. It has a 5 1/8-inch, black chapter ring with recessed, gold-filled numbers. The two-part body of the clock is made up of an alloy casting face ring with 24-karat gold plating and a polished mahogany base. A ½-round gold accent strip surrounds the base. It has been cleaned and polished and, the original plating looks almost new. The shape of the hands is identical to those on the Golden Minute. Their visibility is enhanced by the use of a black stripe down the center of each hand. The hands and related gear assembly are made of brass.

Dimensions: 6-inches wide (across the diameter of the face frame) and 14 ¼-inches across the wooden base x 5 ¼-inches deep (allowing for the cord) x 7 ¼-inches high.

Doric-Extra Gilt Columns

Circa: 1880

The E. Ingraham & Co.
Bristol, Conn

 

Catalog No. AS066  Additional Pictures

MOVEMENT: An original, Trade Marked Ingraham, 8-day Time & Strike movement. In addition, the movement is stamped "PATD OCT 8 78 NOV 11 79".  It has a count-wheel strike train, which is fitted with a push-wire, time/strike correction feature. The "push-wire " allows the owner to synchronize the hour struck with the time whenever they get out of sync. This can be done by the owner without the help of a clocksmith or the need to take the clock off the shelf. Today’s busy clock owners appreciate this feature as much now as it was by clock owners over 122 years ago. It strikes only the hour on mellow, yet authoritative wire gong. The original, ornate, pendulum bob and a replacement, old stock, single-ended key are included. It has been fully serviced in our shop and is ready to put in your home, in your office, in your shop for resale OR given as a 'timeless' gift.

CASE STYLE and TRIM: The basic case is made of solid wood with a distinctive rosewood veneer. Other parts of the trim are solid mahogany or rosewood. It is our opinion the clock may have been refinished. If so, it was an excellent job and was done a long time ago. It has been cleaned and polished without disturbing the finish.

The decorative crown-moldings, gilt columns, shaped circular-moldings around the two crystals, and curves of the stepped base provide an interesting array of shadows and high lights. The original, ornate, gold-colored pendulum is boldly displayed behind a round crystal window. The original putty holding in the bubbled, wavy glass crystals has not been disturbed; suggesting that both of the crystals are original.. A pair of original pierced-spade style, blue-steel hands mark the passage of time on an off-white paper face, which is in good condition. The 3 7/8-inch diameter chapter ring surrounds large, easy-to-read, black Roman numerals, which appear to sit on a brass center accent ring.

The two turned wooden circles that hold the face-crystal and the bottom window and the two rosettes all combine to form the door which locks with the same key that is used to wind the clock. A patent for this door design was issued to Elias Ingraham in 1857. The design was so popular that variations of it as well as some outright copies were produced by several other clock manufacturers of the time.

We are offering you an elegant example of the hard-to-find clock offered to the high-fashion clock market by a well-respected Connecticut-clock maker approximately 122 years ago. It is in sound condition, and ready to take up its time keeping duties when it arrives.

Dimensions: 16" high x 10 5/8" wide x 4 5/8 inches deep at base.
