I cannot really date this but probably around the 1890's to early 1900's. There is a brand mark on the back...a triangle in a circle with the letters H & S. Certainly it is highly art Nouveau and really quite a charming wee thing. Obviously this is the door plate only and a wire needs to be connected to the screw and attached to a bell. The actual copper plate is 3" x 2". Marvelous item for anyone building, or renovating, a Victorian or Edwardian period home.
