Knocker style, antique hotel front desk, or retail counter service bell. As you can see in the photos, the top is slightly tilted. I'm sure it could be straightened, but it works so well as it is that I don't want to change anything about it. It's all original, has a nice, vintage patina, and a perfectly working knocker that makes a loud, pleasant, resounding, ringing sound at the slightest touch. It stands 5&1/2 inches tall, to the top of the filial. Circa 1880s-1910.
