We are offering a wonderful and very hard to obtain table gong made by Goberg. The piece is done in the classic Goberg style with lots of hand hammered ironwork. It measures 7 inches tall and sits on a base that is 4 ½ inches in diameter. The gong bell is 2 ½ inches tall and 2 ½ inches wide. At the top of the gong support frame sits a small iron decorative “crown.” The original wood and felt mallet for hitting the gong is also present. The piece makes a very nice tone when struck. Overall the condition is very nice. The stand and base were probably painted black at one time. Somebody removed most of the paint so that the piece now has a burnished dark patina. The bell has the remnants of the original copper colored paint so that it also has a nice age patina. There is some minor oxidation on the ironwork along with the usual scratches, dings, and other marks that would be associated with a piece of this age that was frequently used. The cord that suspends the bell is either original or very old, and is still in nice sound condition. Overall, this is a beautiful item that displays well and sounds great. You will love using it at your next formal dinner party.
