Re: Re: So, what is this worth? (Part 113d-f)
113d – MOST UNUSUAL OLD ARAB BOY TABLE BELL – EITHER BRASS OR BRONZE – POSS AUSTRIAN
This is a most unusual looking old bell, it looks to have a young arab boy for the handle.
I have re-listed it as I have been told it is possibly Austrian and could be very rare.
It is either bronze or brass – it could be bronze that has been polished.
It stands 14.5cm tall and has a diameter of approx 7.5cm.
Sadly it doesn’t have its clapper but still a fantastic old thing.
