This listing is for an antique Japanned door bell made by Sargent. It is complete and in great working order. It has been refurbished, which includes paint removal, cleaning, oiling of parts, and replacing the cotter pin that holds the thumb turn to the plate with a copper ring. Unlike a lot of antique bells that just have a single or double action ring, this bell has a very loud and relatively high frequency ring, as there are two round discs that hit against three tabs, rrrrrrrrrrring.It keeps going as long as the thumb turn is being turned. The thumb turn plate has a great Art Nouveau design. Originally it had a Japanned finish as well, but it has worn off.
The diameter of the bell is around 4. The distance between the bell and the thumb turn plate is 1-1/4", so it will fit a door or partition that is around 1-1/4" deep. See the pictures as this is shown. This can be extended by adding a coupling with an additional rectangular rod.I can do this, but would charge extra depending on the length. I've got some other antique door bells listed. Please SEE My Other Listings for Great Architectural Items. For more information, please review all the pictures and contact me with any questions. If something comes up, please contact me.
