E. Howard & Co. “No. 89 with self-winding movement”, ca. 1913.  Howard offered this model with a weight-driven movement and a self-winding movement that could be used with secondary clocks; a secondary clock is included here.  You can find a manufacturer's description of this model on page 118 of Ly’s American Clocks Vol. 2.  The solid oak case is 59 inches long with old glass in the door and a likely repainted dial.  There is a key for the door latch.  The pendulum hangs behind the movement, the large brass bob shows wear.  The movement is steel and brass and is modified to run on standard electric current (110V); I plugged it in and it ran for about 30-40 min before stopping.  Since I don’t understand how it works, I don’t know why it stopped.  The secondary clock is 17.5 inches in diameter with an 11-inch chapter ring; the case is oak with a medium finish and lots of paint splatter, the glass is old.  The outer ring turns counter-clockwise to lift off. The electric movement is signed E Howard, as is the dial; I did not test it.  “Two clocks for one money.”  $750-$1500.
