This Gilbert “Parole” shelf or parlor clock was made about 1880. The walnut case is 19 1/4 inches tall. The paper dial and hands are original, as are the pendulum and the glass in the door. It has an 8 day time and strike movement with stopworks. There is an alarm unit mounted separately in the case (below dial, to the left). The disc in the center of the dial sets the alarm. There is no alarm shutoff.
