Reproduction E. Howard No. 49 Astronomical Regulator. The original E. Howard astronomical regulators have soared to prices that are out of reach for most collectors. This fine quality reproduction is a compelling alternative at a tiny fraction of the price. The highly carved and beautifully finished mahogany case is 91" tall, 30" wide and 10" deep. The engraved and silvered brass dial is 16" in diameter and is 1/8" thick. The steel hands are blued. The E. Howard signed movement has jeweled pallets. The 4 jar mercury pendulum is in the style of the original Howard pendulum but is a reproduction. The glass jars of the pendulum have lead shot instead of mercury but mercury could be substituted to provide the temperature compensation of the original pendulums. The beat scale in thick brass, finely engraved and silvered. As expected the clock is a fine timekeeper.

Samuel Kralik Grand Sonnerie Vienna Regulator of 6 Week Duration. Samuel Kralik was born in Besztercebanya (originally Hungary now part of Slovakia) in 1815 and from 1828-1834 he was apprenticed to Lehrling, a Viennese clockmaker. On May 14, 1843 he became a Master Clockmaker and in 1851 was the only Austro-Hungarian clockmaker to be shown at the Great Exhibition st Crystal Palace. In the following year he became a member of the Academic Nationale in Paris. He exhibited in Munich in 1854, London 1862, Kesmet 1872, Vienna 1873, Paris 1878 and Budapest, his home, in 1885. In 1862, at the age of 47, he was appointed Clockmaker to the King of Hungary and some 13 years later he gained a Gold Medal and became Clockmaker to the Austrian Kaiser Franz Joseph I. This ca. 1870 clock is a superb example of his work. The ash case is 71" tall. The perfect 9 1/4" dial is signed Kralik S, Pesten. The back of the case has 2 paper labels with the name Samuel Kralik and much additional information. The superb movement runs and strikes for 6 weeks keeping extremely accurate time.

The hands are original. The pendulum is original with original gilding in age appropriate condition. The weight is also original.

30 Day Viennese Astro Regulator by Benno Lukaschofsky. Ca. 1870. The superb rosewood case wit original finish is 74" tall, 19 1/2" wide and 9 1/2" deep. All carvings on the clock are original including the crest and bottom piece. Note the superb brass and mother of pearl inlay on the backboard. All 5 glasses are old and wavy. The 10 1/2" engraved and slivered dial is marked Benno Lukaschofsky - Wien XVIII. As evidenced by the late Biedermeier style of the case and the later style of the dial, the case is earlier than the movement. Also, the original movement was mounted on wood corbels. The astro movement was installed by Lukaschofsky on heavy brass rails mounted to a large brass backing plate which is very securely screwed to the backboard of the clock. This added extra stability to the backboard providing an extremely solid mounting for the movement. Four huge locking threaded case levelers were installed inside the case. One of these is visible in the photo that shows the pendulum. The extremely heavy pendulum bob is brass over lead. Note the neat little fine regulation cup on the pendulum below the dial. It's very unusual to find an Astro regulator in such an exquisitely decorative case. The clock is a very fine timekeeper. See Vic Kochaver's "Beautiful Vienna Regulators of the 19th Century" pages 140 - 141 for reference.
