Customer Question

Good morning. My name is ***** ***** recently I obtained an old clock from my grandparents. I didn't think anything about it until I was moving it one day and noticed a label on the backside that said Wm. L. Gilbert I took photos and started doing some research on the clock and found that label was from 1874 I found a key inside the door for winding the clock. Can you please give me more information about this clock and possibly a value? Thank you
