Antique Nickel Mechanical Doorbell & Cut Glass Pull c. This mechanical doorbell set was made in the late 19th century.
The elegant bell cover is nickel-plated brass, the base nickel-plated iron, and it was made by Sargent. T he octagonal glass pull operates the bell by pulling out on the glass; the wire on the pull attaches to the bell's spring-loaded lever, activating the ringer and producing a medium-toned "gong". The glass is in very good condition with some small chips, a silver-foil cross at the center, and a stepped brass collar (with hidden screw holes). This bell is in excellent working order. This set is ready to be installed on your door.
It can also be adapted to a wall. The bell base measures 3 3/4" across and 3" across holes ; the pull rod is 2 1/4 long.
Having proven that they will last through the years, their value and collectibility will continue to increase. We believe in the wonderful artistry and fine quality hardware produced by 19th century craftsmen. Unless stated otherwise, every item on these pages was designed and made right here in our American past. Let me see if I've got this right.
