E.N. WELCH ANTIQUE 1880 MANTEL Ingraham CLOCK Desoto

FOR AUCTION IS this Wonderful Very Large FANCY WELCH MANTEL CLOCK (w original Key). this is an Exceptionally Large Welch clock as Welch models go. I have researched Welch clocks for a while, and many of the traditional welch clocks are a bit smaller & more common, I have been unable to find this exact one in this extra large Mantel size, so I think it is a fairly rare Welch Model. think it is from the late 1800s. I have been told by an ebayer it is an Ingraham clock movement & Case & it is called Desoto but probably a Welch Dial.

Clock is in a wonderful Gild Decorated Heavy Dark Black Wood Case. Manufactured E.N. Welch Mfc Co. Sides have Original Heavy Gild Lion Heads that are in nice condition & Heavy gild feet that are also in nice condition. Clock is decorated with Gilded decorations. Clock Has a dial with Fancy Numbers & has a Glass Cover that opens & closes on top of the dial. T is an Original key that comes with this clock (see picture). This clock works & seems to keep good time...but it stops from time to time & once it is moved it begins again. it appears to chime with a gong on the hour. I do not know too much about this clock, so I am trying to be as detailed as I can. it is gorgeous & Beautifully Ornate. It measures: 18"side to side x 11" tall x 5 1/8" depth
