An Ingraham Western Union clock is a type of collectible wall clock designed by the Connecticut clock maker E. Ingraham & Company.

The regulator clocks were produced during the late 19th century and early 20th century.

The clocks were originally made for the US-based Western Union communications and money transfer company.

However, they were also produced for a variety of individuals and companies, and would often contain advertising or the company’s details on the lower half of the clock where the pendulum was housed.

Value

A huge number of these clocks were produced, which has ensured that despite their popularity, they remain relatively inexpensive to purchase at auction. Some examples are available for around £100.
