E. Howard & Co., Model No., 70-12 wall clock in walnut. 221147

This Model Number 70 is very good condition. The case is constructed in walnut which is a wood that is seldom seen in this model. The vast majority of the 70 models were made in oak. The darker wood has a very masculine appearance. The case has been re-finished and now has a very is crisp and clean appearance. The 12 inch diameter dial is painted on zinc and is original to this clock. It has had some minor restoration in a couple of areas that it experienced some small losses. The Maker's name is signed in block letters above the numeral "six." The weight driven movement is brass and of very good quality. This movement is designed to run for eight-days on a full wind. It features a recoil escapement. The Maker’s name and model number 70 are die-stamped into the front plate. The weight that powers the clock is cast iron and is also die-stamped with the number 70. This is original to this clock. The pendulum rod is made of wood and is painted black. The zinc bob is covered in brass and the damascene decoration that is applied to it is in good original condition. The glass in the lower door has been professionally re-painted and is done in the traditional Howard colors of black red and gold. This fine example was made circa 1900. It measures approximately 32 inches long.
