E. Howard & Co. represents the pinnacle of American clock-making - the best in Bostonian craftsmanship of the era. This is an antique (late 1800's) #10 in the "figure 8" style that is about as original as they come. All parts (case, door, baffle, & dial board) are stamped with the numeral "27". The 34" case retains the original mirror-flat shellac finish so typical of Howard regulators. The 8" dial has been professionally restored. All the glass appears original. Weight marked with a "5". Just a super-nice advanced collector clock waiting for a new home. Like nearly all Howard regulators 1-10, the bottom of this clock has seen repair. That being said, it was expertly done and is very hard to spot. I can't say enough about the finish on this clock - it is truly superb.
