Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am pleased to help. The Aldine was one of the more common lines of mantle clocks crafted by Ingraham in the late 19th century, and a relatively high production line. In solid working condition, price guides state a retail from $135 to $175 but honestly, on internet sites like eBay, you can often find them in the $50-75 range, such as this one:

You would likely do better, selling, by having the clock placed on consignment in an upscale shop or perhaps adding it on to an upscale estate sale or auction.
