Early 20th Century Desk Counter Bell
Bells were plentiful during the 19th and early 20th century and were used in all manner of situations, from a large school bell to counter bells in shops and delicate bells for ladies to use around the house to summon staff.
This is a lovely lady's desk bell, with a turned mahogany handle. It would have been used in a relativelly wealthy household, and would be used to summon a member of staff.
In good condition.
Dimensions: 13cm high x 8cm wide.
