Clock given to my grandparents as a wedding gift

My father (now deceased) inhereted a Seth-Thomas clock which was given to my grandparents as a wedding gift around 1921 or 1922. The clock, I discovered, was second-hand (i.e. used) when it was given to them.

It is a pendulum clock.

Some of the dimensions are as follows:

Height: 13.5"
Width: 8.75"
Distance from top of clock to face: 3"
Distance from bottom of clock to face: 6.25"
Height of glass door: 8.25"
Width of glass door: 4.25"

The face appears to be porcelain.

The clock is wound in 3 places: one for keeping time and another for the chime. The third, I believe, is for adjustment if the clock is running too fast or too slow.
