Big 1881 Antique Hotel Counter Bell Desk Victorian Cast Iron Brass Store Ringer For Sale
For sale is the largest hotel counter-type bell I have ever seen! The bottom of this one measures about 4 7/8" in diameter and it is about 3 3/4" high. It weighs about 1 pound. The bell portion appears to be made of brass or bronze and the base cast iron. It has an 1881 patent date and wonderful victorian detail! It is in very nice shape with typical wear and oxidation from age and use, as pictured. It has not been cleaned so the condition is original and you can shine it up if you wish. When pressed it gives off a loud and mighty "RING" much louder and deeper and then counter bells of the typical smaller stature. As a matter of fact if one of those smaller bells hears this one it will suffer from Napoleonic Complex and general inadequacy. Now one issue I must point out is that once it is pressed the button top tends to stay in the 'down' position. If you lightly pull up the button it is then reset. I think this might be able to be remedied perhaps with some cleaning and oiling which might stop the button from staying in the down position. So if you collect these hotel or store type counter bells and do not have one of this grand size then come and get it!!!! Buyer pays shipping fee based on zip-code. Paypal accepted. PA residents add 6% sales tax.
