 Large E. Howard Co. Ships Clock – 8 ˝ Inch Silver Dial

Our original E. Howard 8 day ships clock is listed in the early 1900’s Howard catalogue as the Engine Room Model #69 which features a beautiful 8 ˝ inch silvered dial, heavy brass case, jeweled escapement & chronometer balance. The movement is inscribed E. Howard Co. Boston and is has a beautiful damascened pattern on the plates. The silvered dial has been expertly restored to its original condition. The dial is inscribed “American Steam Gauge & Valve Co. - Boston Mass.” Both the E. Howard and Chelsea clock companies offered to the suppliers of ships engine room products and steam fittings a variety of brass clocks with their company proudly displayed on the silvered dials for advertisement. These brass clocks were typically installed by the suppliers of engine room fitments during their installation process. Also, these clocks found use as an advertisement and promotional tool and were supplied to landlubbers as well. There were many more large dial Chelsea brass ships clocks made for every one made by E. Howard clock and as such, these clocks are very difficult to find. The 11 ˝ inch original coppery colored brass case has been polished to a beautiful sheen (not lacquered) and is a very attractive but will tarnish to its antique patina if not polished periodically.

Rare A. Ericson Marine Chronometer #1619

This well preserved marine chronometer made by A. Ericson was made around 1914 and found maritime use during WW-I according to book Chronometer Makers of the World. Ericson had used only Kullberg movements which is considered to be one of the finest and most accurate of its time. The number in the bowl is 7736, which is the usual Kullberg number to identify it. This chronometer is running very well and has a pleasant ticking resonating from it. The face and hands reflect great craftsmanship and are in beautiful condition. The original case is in good condition as it is 3-tiered with all original parts, glass, and the original badge on the outside identifying its maker. A great piece to add to anyone's collection!
