189b – Rare Antique OWL desk bell, glass eyes
Approx 8cm high
The bell works by pressing the beak
& has a fantastic ring to it
lovely glass eyes
condition is good but there are two splits to the sides as shown
has a lovely patina.
Most common of the celluloid mechanical bells, but difficult to locate. Splits near base are common.
Flat head screws and square nuts are relatively old, but I doubt they are original.
Seller does not mention what looks to be a hole beneath the ear.
