    This is a rather unusual sleek looking art deco styled bronze/brass counter bell from the early 1900s. It is a reception bell, the type you just hit from the top, and there's a lever underneath the dome that swings up and gives a very resounding ping when you do. It has a circular frame with the original three ball feet. It's in excellent condition and fully operational. The base measures 115mm (4.5") across by 95mm (3.5") high.

    No maker's marks that I can see, but it's clearly a very high-quality piece.

    This is the second of only two antique bells I've ever bought. The other is a beautiful WMF Art Nouveau mechanical bell that I posted on here about 8 months ago.

    Thanks for looking!
