Waltham Banjo clock With Wayside Inn Glasses WALTHAM CLOCK COMPANY BANJO TIMEPIECE, A COLLECTABLE EXAMPLE WITH LONGFELLOW'S WAYSIDE INN GLASSES IN MINT ORIGINAL CONDITION and Painted Case, (Circa Mid twentieth Century)

Here is another opportunity to own a very high quality Waltham weight driven banjo timepiece with very rare "original" Wayside Inn glasses.  As you can see, these glasses are in mint original condition with no touch up.  The combination of these glasses and the original painted case make a very attractive clock.  The dial is mint and untouched.

Waltham produced the highest quality, production banjo clocks.  The movement with die stamped plate, maintaining power, deadbeat escapement, and stop works is behind a nicely painted, convex dial signed Waltham.

The entire clock is 100 percent original including the weight, weight pan, and tie-down.

Longfellow's Wayside Inn, located alongside Boston Post Road, is the oldest operating Inn in the country founded in 1716.  Very few of these glasses were incorporated in to Waltham banjo clocks to commemorate this famous Massachusetts landmark.

Howard No. 5 Banjo Clock, Circa 1865
"Perfect Collector's Condition"

The E. Howard & Company manufactured five different sizes of the banjo form. I think this is the most pleasing in its proportions.

This is a "PERFECT" original example with its original grained finished case to simulate the rich look of rosewood. The tablets on this example are "perfect & original" as well; the dial is original and the best with a script signature "E Howard & Company Boston".  As all the E. Howard clocks, the movement is of the greatest quality with a recoil escapement and die stamped on the front plate "E Howard & Company, Boston".  The pendulum is also original with remnants of the ring turned damascened design on the bob.  The original weight is cast iron with the number "5" cast in it.  The clock also retains its original "put up" instructions on the inside surface of the bottom board.

These clocks are extremely high quality and good time keepers.  This particular example is certainly a collector's clock as well as a great investment.
