Antique American Clocks January 2022
E. Howard & Co. “No. 70 Regulator”, ca. 1900. An oak case (31 inches long) with a 12-inch dial. The case shows modest wear on an old finish, the dial glass original, the lower glass old and either rebacked or repainted. The dial is also period but a likely substitute for the original. The hands are correct, the 8-day, time-only movement is running fine, driven by a No. 70 weight and regulated by a pendulum bob that shows much wear and no damascening. There is a label on the original wooden weight shield and a complete pendulum tie-down. AAC sold a similar example last summer for $750. $600-$900.
