A RARE LADY BELL
DEPICTING AN ELEGANT LADY HOLING A SMALL DOG IN ONE HAND AND A FAN IN THE OTHER

Looks like another of the new Russian bells – shoddy workmanship and porous casting.
Hard to believe that it could be called RARE.

233c – Sonnette Erotica Curiosa Bronze Femme seins nus
Début XXe siècle
Hauteur 10cm
Largeur 7cm
Le systme de sonnette ne fonctionne pas, à réparer. Il y a le bouton pressoir. Bon état général.

Unusual and Erotic Bronze bell, Topless Woman
Early twentieth century
height 10cm
width 7cm
The system bell does not work, needs repair. There is a push button. Good overall condition.

Missing two screws (any decent hardware store) and the leaf spring switch needs to be bent upwards.
Minor repairs and easy to do. Otherwise, it may well have sold in the $400 range.
