This antique brass bell was probably found over the door of a Victorian store. The tinkle of the bell would let a shop keeper know that a customer was needing assistance. In original unrestored condition this bell is solid brass and the spring strap is steel. The original clanger is attached to the interior of the bell. The piece could be polished and waxed if desired. The bell has a diameter of 3.5 inches and also stands 3.5 inches tall. The attached pieces of sprung steel gives it a height of 9.5 inches. It would be novel and interesting to install this bell over a back or side door to create an antique charm to your home!
