A fantastic antique shop door bell. Made from cast brass with a curved metal arm. Cast into the brass at the top of the bell is 'Evans Patent'. Dating from the Victorian period but the attached arm is much later. These bells were attached to all types of shops, from haberdashery to aporthecaries to alert the shop keeper that customers have entered. They have a wonderful 'ting' sound. We have only given it a light clean as they have a fabulous timeworn patina. Perfect to incorporate into a modern interior to add soul and character to a space.


Tarnishing to brass due to age. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


8.5 cm diameter,  21 depth from wall, 24 cm height
