I should update what findings I have on this one.

Peerage is a “brand name” for Brass items made by a company called “Birmingham Page Jewsbury Co. Ltd.” in Birmingham England. The Brand seems to have first gone into production at about 1945. The combination of “Peerage” with “Made in England” was used, apparently, mostly on “items with symbols” for the Irish market. I do suspect it also was used for items bound for other markets too.

The consensus so far is that the figure is about 1930 in style, possibly American.

I have seen a couple others of this type, but the clappers were standard “ball” type and not the “hockey Puck” “Peerage – Made in England” one. The owners of those bells unfortunately had no more info than I already have.
