We are offering a wonderful and very hard to come by table gong made by Goberg. The piece is done in the classic goberg style with lots of hand hammered ironwork, some brass work, and a brass Viking ship which is one of his signature designs. This particular piece is much larger than the standard gong that he usually made. It measures 15 ¾ inches tall, is 12 inches long, and 4 inches deep at the base. The solid textures brass gong bell is 8 ¼ inches in diameter. At the top of the gong support frame sits an impressed brass Viking ship that measures 4 ½ inches long and 4 ½ inches tall. The original wood and felt mallet for hitting the gong is also present. The piece makes a very nice tone when struck. The condition of the table gong is very nice. It retains much of its original dark varnish on the iron work, and the brass elements have very little oxidation. 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. It has the signature “Germany” on the underside of the base. Overall, it is a beautiful item that displays well and sounds great. You will love using it at your next formal dinner party.
