Century HOTEL DESK/STORE COUNTER BELL with PHEASANT FINIAL. At the top sits a wonderful figure of a pheasant. The bird is beautifully cast and appears to be silver or silverplate as does the bell itself (I have not tested them).
The cast iron base is decorated with a scrolling floral motif and still sports its original green applied patina. The base has a Patent date on the bottom, worn over the years, but appears to read APR.
The bell stands 5 ½ inches high. The half sphere bell is 3 inches in diameter and the base measures 3 5/8 inches point to point. The whole mechanism weighs 13 ½ ounces. This bell is in excellent condition and has a wonderful presence. It rings clear and sweet with a.Light tap of the brass knob. These bells were used in hotels and general stores and their cheerful sound called for attention. Now it can grace your desk or counter.
