Fabulous antique brass tortoise clockwork cast iron shop counter or desk bell. This one has a lovely mixed dark and copper colour with scale detail to the legs as well as the pattern on the shell, which has an unusual edging. You wind it up underneath.
Put it on a flat surface and press the head to ring the bell. It is in working order but I suspect it could use a clean as the bell noise is a bit croaky. Please study the photos as they form part of the description.
Please note there are some marks to shell commensurate with age. Im unsure if this had a tail at some point. Please note that all items I sell may also be available on my two stalls at Bazaar, Upper Gardner Street, Brighton and/or on my instagram waspandbird so may be withdrawn at any time.
