E. Howard, Boston, Mass solid brass slave wall clock. Please read the full description and view all of the photos as they are part of the description. Case is 11” diameter, 2 ¾” deep; with an 8” diameter Arabic numeral dial. This and one other clock we acquired were corroded and the dials were sent out for restoration. It appears that they were outdoor clocks and were subject to weather conditions, rain and snow. The original 2 piece laminated glass is in place. The case was polished to a mirror finish and sealed. The wood back is dated. The Howard slave movement was removed years ago. The clock is now fitted with a new high torque quartz movement, reliable timekeeping within a few seconds a month. The clock will run for one year on a single Duracell C battery. This was an act of love with a lot of skill to conserve this clock. The term Slave clock refers to a clock that ran off a large master clock. In most cases there were many clocks connected in series, an impulse was sent from the master clock every minute causing each clock to advance by one minute See photos. See photos. (INV. 10924)
