Very nice. I have only seen a few Parker clocks

One more rabbit hole I could end up going down :corn:

I have the same model. I love it. It goes perfectly with my pieces of mission furniture. The mechanism is the typical alarm clock of the period. The wind lasts about a day and a half.

What are the dimensions of the clock stand itself?

Mine is packed up for my move. But jerry's height sounds right for the overall height of the stand.

Dean..It's about 11 1/2" tall..and the base is about 5x4 inches.

Only a day and a half wind... I have several wind up table clocks from the same period and they have a 7-10 day wind and chime. Why was Parker clock wind duration so short?

It is an alarm clock. You would wind it each day after turning the alarm off on waking.
Less expensive of a mechanism too i am sure.
