Gilbert Black Mantel Clock

This clock was in our house when my father passed away, but I never saw it before then. From the pictures, hopefully you can see the identifying features.

The workings include a stamp with the date 1903. The face has the letters 'S' and 'F' at 12:00. The label pictured is from the underside of the clock.

I have wound it up and it has been keeping good time. It chimes the correct number of times on the hour, and has a bell that rings on the 1/2 hour (which my dog finds quite unsettling).

Just wondering about the value of this clock, its rarity, etc. I truly know nothing about antique clocks, so any feedback is appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time!
