E. Howard & Co. “No. 95” banjo, ca. 1923-1934.  A 40-inch mahogany case with the original glasses and tablets.  There has been some slight touch-up to the tablet depicting Admiral Perry’s victory on Lake Erie in 1813.  The dial glass is convex, the dial with the original paint and signed, and original hands.  The 8-day time-only movement is signed and running, driven by a proper lead weight and damascened pendulum bob.  There is a metal maker's label on the inside bottom of the case.  A very nice example; AAC sold a similar example in 2020 for $1000.  $900–$1200.
