Re: Re: So, what is this worth? (Part 116d-f)
116d – MOST UNUSUAL OLD FIGURAL TABLE BELL – BRASS OR BRONZE – POSS AUSTRIAN LADY?
This is a most unusual looking old bell.
It has a seated figure for its handle – looks like it could be a woman.
It is possibly Austrian and could be very rare, it came with the other Austrian bell I sold last week.
It is either bronze or brass – hard to tell so I am listing it as brass.
It stands 14.5cm tall and has a diameter of approx 8.5cm.
It has a most unusual clapper.
To me, the best bell of this group, including Part 116f below.
Exquisite bronze casting with high relief from France/Germany/Austria, c. 1900.
