These bells used to be placed on the counter-top in hotel reception areas, in distinguished residences, as well as in the salon of wealthy homes in order to summon their servants.
France, from the 19th century.
The bell is made out of bronze.
The pedestal is richly decorated in high relief with beautiful and detailed leaves and berries.
On the top of the bell there is a graceful flame in high relief.
Most decorative as well as still being quite functional.
In good working order.
Produces a lovely warm chime.
In beautiful, weathered condition with a lovely aged patina, that adds to the charm of this old bell.
