King Arthur grandfather clocks are not usually considered 'high value' as they were usually 'put together' clocks as parts (kits) were purchased from all over the world (they used German movements) and 'clock' people put them together.
The company was in business from 1983-1989 so this clock would probably have been purchased after 1983.
Company history:
"George Fowler helped to found the King Arthur Clock Company. First known trademark for King Arthur was registered on March 24, 1983 with Bobbye K. Fowler serving as president. This company never saw the same level of success as Emperor and was gone by the late 1980s. The span of King Arthur's business would not exceed the 1980s decade so clocks from this company tend to be uncommon. They used Hermle or Urgos movements."

Your model number may be located on the back of the frame or inside on the back of the clock. You will need this model number to be able to do research for value of your clock.
A Grandfather clock's value cannot be determined by listings/sales of similar clocks for several reason:
Model numbers can have completely different works as well as have different appearances and one style may be more popular than another.
Age can also make a difference.
Condition will rarely be the same for each clock.
Location: very important to value as these clocks are very expensive to ship and cannot be done buy a regular shipping company. They have to be properly dismantled and then properly put back together at the destination.
Here is a link that might explain how this can be a problem:

You do not say if your clock is working so that is another factor.
Grandfather clocks are usually very slow sellers even at low prices.
This particular clock has been listed for sale - asking $350 - for almost 4 years (actually since 2017) and still has not sold.

This site offers an appraisal for $19 which may be something to think about as they will help you find your model number which will be a big help in determining value.
There are also other sites for an appraisal but this site specializes in grandfather clocks.

I couldn't find it on ebay. Great search! And this price $ 350, in my opinion, is the average for this grandfather clock.
