227a – Antique Middle Eastern Brass Shop/Hotel Counter Bell c1900
This antique middle eastern shop or hotel counter bell I think dates to around 1900, the bell is made of brass with ornate red and blue stones or beads and has nice patina with age as seen in the photos, there are middle eastern symbols on panels around the sides and has other ornate designs, the bell works and is operated by twisting the button on the top of the bell, it measures 3.5 inches diameter and 3 inches high and in good working condition just minor wear and tear with age.
