E. Howard 12" Marine Clock - W. W. Lindsay Company (Sold)

Item ID: 1688 - E. Howard 12 inch ship clock made im Boston 1899. The clock has a beautiful red brass case which houses Howard's eleven jeweled movement with nickeled, damascened plates and traditional Howard diamond hands of blued steel. The movement is signed: "E. Howard & Co. Boston 10". The case has a locking bezel and key. The dial is superbly engraved with Roman numerals and star minute markers inside the chapter ring. The name, "W.W. Lindsay & Co. and Philadelphia" is finely engraved with sharp seraphs. (Note the letters "L" in Philadelphia) Above the numeral six, the dial is engraved: "H. Belfield & Co., PHILA". All the engraving contains its original black English wax. The clock is mounted on a custom mahogany base. A custom walnut ring is available for wall mounting if you prefer.
This marine clock is documented in the E. Howard & Co. sales records (Box 15, Sales Ledger #13) located in the Smithsonian. This ledger states that this clock was sold on "January 11, 1899 to H. Belfield Co., Philadelphia, with 12" hands, $25." In all 22 boxes of the Howard sales records, Jim Dyson a ship's clock expert, listed references to approximately 100 marine clocks with 12" dials, but this is the only record of a 12" marine clock being sold to Belfield in all of the ledgers. The back of the dial is embossed with "M1899." There is no doubt that this is the clock referenced in the Howard records. There is no information on Lindsay, however, H. Belfield was a brass founder Philadelphia whose name has appeared in the Chelsea sales ledgers as far back as 1898. The name Jos. A. Bollinger, Phila. is also factory-stamped into the front movement plate.
Condition: The clock is in outstanding condition. The case has been recently polished and lacquered.
