Antique Large Victorian Bronze Hand Pull Door Bell. Features the original section of wall wood WITH the brass feed-thru plate, cast bronze arm and the steel pull chain. Bronze bell measures 4-3/4 dia. This is a little larger than normal bell, has a beautiful tone and lasting ring. Dark, original aged patina on the bell.Lower plate finish has been altered. Bell mechanism is made of cast iron and dated on the back: Pat. I couldn't find a maker's mark anywhere on this. Striker ball mechanism strikes once with each pull. Not sure about the string in there.
My guess was to mute the bell a little. I leave all adjusting or not up to the new owner.
The bell is as found. Lower mechanism plate is 4-1/8" long x almost 1" wide.There are fewer and fewer of these original beauties. I'm glad to have found this one. But come on, I'm not charging you for the board in the first place! I'm just offering because some folks like it with the original wood.
