    This is a Gilbert 1910 Kitchen/Mantle clock with a unique feature, it has an alarm mechanism in it. Gilbert made a non-alarm version of this clock also (last picture). The alarm is set by moving the gold ring in the center of the dial by the number of hours you want. If it is 4:00 and you want the alarm to go off at 7:00 you move the alarm ring to 3 aligning it directly beneath the 12 on the dial, which indicates 3 hours from now which is 7:00. Then wind the alarm mechanism so the alarm sounds. You cannot shut the alarm off like modern clocks, it has to wind down, and it is loud. The alarm is not precise it will sound +/- 10 to 15 minutes within the time you want it to go off. This alarm feature was $0.50 extra in 1910 ($13.61 today). The alarm is triggered by a wire running from the gold ring in the center of the dial to a arm on the alarm mechanism. The clock is missing one piece of trim, but otherwise is in great working order.
