268d – ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED FIGURAL BELL of OLD WOMAN with NODDING HEAD c1880
Here we have an antique silver plated figural bell, 4 1/4″, probably Victorian, modeled as an old lady. Unlike most such bells, her head is attached to the clapper and pivot and therefore nods when moved. The modelling is extremely detailed, especially in picking out all the folds in her dress and her bonnet. She has a dog underarm and is resting on a stick.
Another of the so-called Old Mother Hubbard nodders, this one in silver plate, but not marked “Elkington” as some of the other silver plate versions are.
