An attractive Bakelite Art Deco alarm clock by Ingersoll. Excellent Art Deco detailing to the clock face.
In very good condition, with the movement just having been cleaned and adjusted. This is a 30 hour winding movement.
The Ingersoll Watch Company grew out of a mail order business started in New York in 1882 by 21 year old Robert Hawley Ingersoll and his brother Charles Henry Ingersoll.
In 1904 Ingersoll opened a store in London, England. After the recession of WW1 the company went bankrupt. In 1922 it was purchased by the Waterbury Clock Company, who sold the London based arm of the Ingersoll watch business to its board of directors in 1930.
