Antique Clocks/Jenny Lind clock(s)


I read info about the (a) Jenny Link clock in another part of this website.  I saw a picture of what was said to be a, I think a Waterbury, Jenny Lind that is the napolean hat style.  There is one going at a auction near me tomorrow: .  But it is listed as a Ingraham, Jenny Lind.  Forgive my stupidity, but who is Jenny Lind?  The net has other Lind clocks.  I am a hobbiest clock repairer.  I asked two other clock guys I know, and they seem as ignorant as I am about "Jenny Lind".  BTW, I have properly disassembled several clocks, rebushed, and ultrasonically cleaned them.  Yes, timed and put them back together.  LOL  Just that my knowledge is not about the names, and history, and who exactly is "Jenny Lind".


the little metal or wooden head - top center is an image of Jenny   and I do not think I have ever seen one on a Napolean hat style

I have never heard them called that officially --most clock co names for these are different like
Triumph, etc.
