E. Howard & Co. Standing Regulator. The mahogany case is 74" tall and 26" wide. The fine quality movement has Geneva stop work, ruby pallet jewels and maintaining power. The 4 jar mercury pendulum is stamped 2316-19. The pendulum number is the amount of mercury required to compensate the pendulum. The front hanging pendulum with thumbprint Sandwich glass vials and damascened upper and lower pieces glistens and sparkles as the pendulum swings, completely visible, barely an inch behind the door glass. The dial with applied numerals and fine hands is perfectly proportioned to the clock and is quite elegant. The matte silver background is perfect behind the gilt raised numerals and fine blued hands. The warm brown color of the mahogany case complements the gold and silver tones of the dial and pendulum perfectly. The pendulum and movement are in the style of 1870 to 1878. The clock dial and hands are from the Hall Clock period of the late 1880’s to about 1910. While the case is not a Howard catalog design it may have been made at the Howard factory from an earlier wall clock. This can be seen in the photo of the movement in the case. The arcing “top” above the movement is certainly from the original wall clock. A very fine standing regulator and truly superb timekeeper.
