I found this little gem at a local thrift shop for $2. It's about 3 inches long and 1.5 inches tall. I can see some old red and gold paint on the bird. The strange part is that it has a push button and an old electrical cord (but no plug). I have no idea what it's supposed to do, but I just love it.
UPDATE: A BIG Thank You to IVAN49 who quickly identified this as a table servant bell electric ringer. I've added a few more photos to show the remnants of paint color and the inside mechanism. (I unscrewed 4 small flat-head screws to remove the bottom plate). The only mark I found was "21" on the inside of the bottom plate.
