255c – Very Rare Antique 19th C. Chinese Bronze Attendant Bell /w Very Fine Bird Dinger
Here is an interesting and unusual item out of a New York asian arts Estate Collection. Measures 4-3/4 in. (12 cm) tall. This piece is over 100 years old and is entirely hand-made. When the bird is pushed down, the ringer inside the elephants body hits the side of the bell and makes a beautiful “ding”. The exterior of the bell is entirely hand-engraved, in addition to to the birds feathers and body.
Condition: Bell functions. Item comes in three pieces: elephant, rounded Bell, and bird Insert. The threading into the elephant is a little bit loose as this item is over 100 years old.

Hard to know just what to make of this. If bronze, the elephant is a rather strange color. Apparently bidders were also rather uncertain, as it sold at a relatively low price for a mechanical bell.
