214a – Vintage Green Brass Bell Figural Clown
Vintage Signed Green Brass Bell. 4 3/4″ high.

214b – Great, Brass, Bell Wind Chime Set
Great, Brass, Bell Wind Chime Set – Bell measures 3-1/2″ tall and 4-1/2″ wide – Overall measurement is 14-1/2″ long from the top of the Bell to the bottom of the chime; and 20″ long to the very bottom of the metal O-Ring on the cord – The Chimes make a great sound – Pre-owned in good condition – It is a side mount, but there are no holes in the mount plate to put nails or screws (see picture #3), would probably need to drill holes in the mount.

Interesting design on the bell, unit looks more substantial than the usual shoddy examples from India.

214d – RARE SILVERED BRONZE ART NOUVEAU ANTIQUE TABLE BELL
This lovely bell dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. It features an ornate and open work handle and bands of fine engraving around the bell. It is in very good condition with wear to the plating. Please note that what appears to be a crack on the inside of the bell is not really a crack, it is merely a surface scratch.The bell has a beautiful sound when rung.

214e – lady bells
These are part of my collection in which I have doubles of…both of these are listed in the American bell international web site..the detail is superb in the small jester, as the jester on his horse…childs fairground ride solid good quality brass with clappers and nice tones when rung..thats all I know about them, I decide to sell them together, as they bought them like that and of course two jesters…much sort after.. hope if they sell they go to a good home…..if not I am happy to keep them as doubles.

The first is the Mr Punch jester bell, and the second is the jester on a hobby horse.
Each appears to be good quality.

Someone got a good deal, as the pair might often sell in the $125 range.

214g – CLOCHE ou SONNETTE de TABLE ou COMPTOIR – GOBERG – Fer forgé vers 1900
Belle cloche de table en fer forgé , petit bouton en bakélite . Sonnerie mécanique à ressort , le remontoir est en dessous . La pression sur le bouton dégage la roue dentée qui entraine l’axe sur lequel est monté le battant qui vient frapper la cloche. Le système est parfois capricieux et la roue se bloque. Marque en creux en dessous. Début XXème. Diamètre 15 cm , hauteur 7,5 cm.

BELL CHIME or TABLE or DESK – Goberg – Wrought Iron 1900
Beautiful wrought iron table bell, small bakelite button. Mechanical spring ring, the bell is below. Pressing the button disengages the gear which drives the shaft on which is mounted the hammer that strikes the bell. The system is sometimes capricious and wheel locks. Brand mark on bottom. Early twentieth century. Diameter 15 cm (5.9 in), height 7.5 cm (3 in).

Unusual mechanical bell that I would expect to attract more attention and to sell at a higher price.
Usual problem, though, that a seller will not accept PayPal and thus limit the number of persons who would be able to send payment by a French check or bank transfer.

En parfait état
Poids 876 grammes
Hauteur 14 cm

Bronze or brass bell of a Monk
Antique bronze bell
Monk wearing a cross around his neck, holding in his left hand a basket and an umbrella in his right hand
In perfect condition
Weight 876 grams
Height 14 cm (5.5 in)

One of two brass monk bells made by Pearson Page (Birmingham UK) circa 1920.
For some reason the casting details of these two bells are always far below the usual PP standard.
The first set of pictures is the alternate version, followed by the item now listed on eBay.
Notice the clapper on the eBay bell appears to be a horseshoe nail.

Rather high price paid by an inexperienced bidder.
