That's a very attractive mahogany-cased clock from around the turn of the 20th century. It could be as early as the 1890s or as late as the 1920s. My guess is it is German, but it could be English or American. It looks like a standard grandfather clock in proportion, but the picture makes me think it may be smaller than usual. What is the overall height? To tell you any more, we need more information and better pictures. Is there any name on the dial? a closeup of the dial would be good, and the front of the case with the door open.
The one thing that looks suspect is the short length of the pendulum. This could indicate a replaced movement, which would considerably reduce the clock's value.
What a fun clock! I think it would date to the 1920s-1930s, when classical revival made a comeback and showed up in mass-produced furniture. How tall is the clock? It looks a bit short, so "grandmother clock" might be a more appropriate nickname, rather than the taller "grandfather clock." I agree with Jeremy that the pendulum looks suspect. I would expect it to hang much lower.
