Addendum to Part 262d
A friend has sent pictures of another of these bells,
showing that the eBay bell is missing some decorative items.

263a – SUPERB ~ GOTHIC ‘Knight’ ~ SILVER Plated ~ ‘Maids’ BELL ~ c1900
Description : This superb ‘maids bell’ is ornately designed, fine Gothic details to the bell, the handle featuring what looks to be a medieval knight, doffing his cap
A great piece, dating to c1900 to 1920 I reckon
Condition Overall: Very Good
Dimensions (Approx.) : Height – 14cm

Seller says the knight is doffing his cap. This is a relatively poor casting. I have had one of these bells for many years, details are better, and he is holding a flaming torch away from his head.

263d – Rare Bronze WAGNER Moose Limited Signed Plaque Sculpture LE
This is a very nice bronze moose plaque.
The back board is appox 8.5 x 10.5 inches.
The widest part of the bronze is approx 5¼ inches at the horns.
Marked @76 Wagner
something over 5000

I have seen Carl Wagner bells, cups, and thimbles, but never a plaque previously. I have no idea how many more plaques he made, if any. The ’76 date is at the early period for the other items.
The last picture is of a moose head bell.
