I finally got an E. Howard model Number 70 wall clock at auction. This case that is constructed in oak. The vast majority of the Howard 70 clocks manufactured were constructed in oak cases. It is in fine condition. The overall color is very good. The 12 inch dial is painted on tin and is original to this clock. It is signed by the Maker in block lettering. The weight driven movement is brass and of very good quality. The Makers’ name and model Number 70 are die-stamped into the front plate. The weight is cast iron and is original to this clock. It too features the number “70.” The pendulum rod is made of wood. The bob is zinc. It is covered in brass for compensation. The reverse painted tablet is done in the traditional Howard colors of black red and gold. This tablet appears to be original to this clock. This clock was made circa 1890 or so. This clock measures 32 inches long.
