256a – A+ RARE OLD FRENCH BELGIAN BRONZE BELL W/ FIGURAL PROVINCIAL ROBED WOMAN HANDLE
THIS IS A FANTASTIC 19/20THC FRENCH OR BELGIAN BRONZE BELL WITH A FIGURAL PROVINCIAL OR NEO-CLASSICAL ROBED WOMAN HANDLE. JUST GLORIOUS WITH A GREAT SOUND.
JUST UNDER 11″T. BELL WIDTH IS 5.75″W.
VERY FINE CONDITION WITH LIGHT WEAR.

Looks like a marriage, not badly done, but the bell is too large for the handle.

Note the solder connection of the figure to the bell.

256d – PARKER (TRADE MARK) 2 BELLS ALARM CLOCK. SEPARATE ALARM SPRING UNIT
Parker trade mark alarm clock. this is a very rare American clock. It’s very early also, from the late 1800’s. The vast majority found is the 1 bell variety. This one has 2 bells.
The case looks to be solid brass & the base is prettily engraved and decorated in a floral pattern. The little brass finials over the bells & clock are perfect.
The clock winds in the back. You need to pull the center part of the winder in order to move the hands. There is a knob on the left to move the alarm hand. It moves clockwise.
The clock works well & keeps good time. The alarm also works well. It’s loud & musical. the dial, the hands (particularly the alarm hand), the beveled glass, the overall appearance are superb.
7″ long, 5″ high & 4″ deep. A rare & early American Parker & Whipple alarm clock in great condition & good working order. Truly a nice horological find.
