Condition Report For Lot# 830 :
the solid wood case has been nicely refinished, but the lower glass should be clear but has been painted with the Howard colors.

The weight looks correct, the bottom portion of the pendulum unit may be more modern, and its tie-down is absent. The hands are a painted soft metal, not original. Ht 33"
