Value of Emperor Grandfather Clock?

This Emperor grandfather clock was purchased by my father in the early 70s. It's been kept immaculate and was only stopped running because of the preference of not hearing the chimes. Is there a way to get a ballpark figure as to the value? I'm trying to decide to move it to my home or to sell.

There are a lot of grandfather clocks listed for sale on many sites and eBay US has about 10-15 of the Emperor brand.
Clocks are still being made and sold all over the world but people who really desire this type of piece are usually going to pay big bucks and get one from the factory.
Shipping costs will be very high so most people trying to sell one of these will list them as 'pick up only' so value could be high or low depending on the location where the clock is located.
Some areas may be receptive to this type of item while others may not be the least bit interested in having something that will be difficult to move later and really has no 'useful' function (apartment areas may be the least interested).

If you wish to list this clock for a very high price you really need to know more about it. Your father may have the paperwork that will list every detail but, if not, it may be possible to acquire the information from the company but they will not tell you anything about value and, quite possibly may not help you at all.

You can check out some of the listings on eBay to see the type of information you will need as there are several of exactly the same model or very similar as without the full information I'm just going on "looks" but you may be able to see some differences.

Check out eBay listings here but bear in mind that asking prices are just prices a seller would like to receive for their item and has nothing to do with true value unless it sells at that price.

You can check out eBay's sold listings to see what people are currently paying for clocks like yours or similar. Sold prices usually represent current value but you should notice that most sales will be pick up only and, as mentioned before, areas differ in value of an item.
First link is to clock that sold but you can find them in the sold listings.

Should you decide to sell you may have better luck by posting on Facebook Marketplace, letgo, offerup as you can list it as pick up only and also list on several sites.
You will need information on your clock so check out several listings to see how others are describing their clocks as well as type of pictures.
You can start your price high and lower it if no one shows an interest.

On eBay in the UK a person is trying to sell the exact clock you have here. They are asking 300 pounds for the clock. That does not mean they will get this much money when it is sold but this is their starting price and I am sure it will get adjusted if anyone is interested in buying this from them.
