This late nineteenth/early twentieth-century doorbell is made of a bronze alloy with a beautiful iron swirl connecting it to its stake. The stake is designed to plug into a wall or gate post and there is a loop on the back where a chain can be attached. It makes a lovely 'dong' sound.
Condition and patina consistent with age.
