Howard and Davis Regulator No. 4 from 1856/57. This 157 year-old beauty graced the walls of an Odd Fellows Hall in St. Louis, Missouri - obviously donated to the hall by Ben. F. Crane & Co. The provenance of this clock is supported by several key observations and historical information: Aaron Howard apprenticed under his older brother Edward Howard in 1856/57 and the movement bears his stamp. Howard & Davis was dissolved in 1857 and succeeded by E. Howard & Company. There are several identical service stickers on the inside of the clock that were placed one on top of the other. The most recent sticker reads: "No. 13324 Nov. 16th, 1915. Name: Mr. Martin. Address: 4443 Washington. Mermod, Jaccard & King Jewelry Co,. ST. LOUIS, MO." Clock retains all of it's original faux rosewood graining with beautiful original shellac finish. Dial and all glass are untouched original. Movement with the A. Howard stamp is running strong and retains all original hardware including the weight marked with a "4". Case in fine shape and is sturdy with no loose joinery. However, several stress cracks commensurate with age are apparent around the head of the clock - but the finish remains intact. 32" in height, 7" time track, 8-day time-only regulator.
