This is a vintage bell that would have been found on any number of old counter tops, often with a little sign saying; Ring for Service. Whether at a hotel desk or next to the cash register of the general store this has a clear ring that we all have some remembrance of. The dome is nickel plated steel. Thee base ring has a leaf design and appears to have an anodized finish with copper highlights. The clapper is cast metal. There is no maker or any other information on it.
It measures about 3 1/6” in diameter and 2 3/8” to the top of the plunger. It still has a beautiful clear tone when the plunger is struck and is in otherwise fair condition. The plating on the dome is good with minor wear on two-thirds but the other third is pitted, scuffed and discolored. This doesn't inhibit the beautiful "ding" when rung.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
