61a – Clochette de table XIX° bronze allégorie de la musique
Cette clochette de table date du XIX°, elle est ornée d’une statuette représentant une allégorie de la musique tenant une harpe dans ses mains.
Elle est en bon état et sonne très clair, elle mesure 12 cm de haut et 7 cm de diamètre.

Bronze table bell, 19th Century, allegory of music.
This table bell dates to the 19th Century, it is decorated with a statue representing an allegory of music holding a harp in her hands.
It is in good condition with a clear ring, it measures 12 cm (4.8 in) in height and 7 cm (2.8 in) in diameter.

The figure is Terpsichore, the Greek Muse who serves as the inspiration of dance. Her emblem or “attribute” is a lyre.

The bell may be bronze, but the figure looks to me like pewter.

61c – Antique Cast Iron DRGM 192197 Owl Head Clock Work Bell Glass Eyes Germany
Wonderful antique cast iron clockwork Owl head bell with glass eyes..
5″x 4 5/8″, it can be mounted on a door or can be a counter bell.
Great antique condition, it works great. You press his nose and it rings.

We’ve seen a similar one in Part 46b, though that was rigged as a simple tap bell.
One curious feature, to me at least, is that they each have the same German Registration Number.
The current listing is the pictures on the left. They are about the same size.
