E. Howard & Co. “No. 5 Regulator” (banjo),ca. 1874.  A second example of this iconic wall clock.  The finish is clear and the rosewood graining is evident on all surfaces.  The three glasses are period/original, with the original putty holding the dial glass in place.  As with #187, the dial is the weakest point, with spotting, discolored touch-ups, and soiling.  The hands are proper and period.  The 8-day,time-only movement is signed and running without issue; there is a proper No. 5 cast iron weight, wooden weight shields painted red a long time ago, and a damascened pendulum bob with a working tie-down.  Practically perfect except for the worn dial. $500–$700.
