Re: Re: So, what is this worth? (Part 90)
90a – GEORG JENSEN Solid STERLING Silver Bell
The bell is quite plain with no fancy embossed decorations.
The bell has been clearly hallmarked and reads as follows:- DENMARK Georg Jensen STERLING – JA 246.
The bell measures 8.6 cm (3.5 in)to its highest point by 3.6 cm (1.5 in) in diameter and weighs 71 grams.
Another of the Georg Jensen sterling bells, like Tiffany always in high demand,
but probably purchased by silver collectors more than bell collectors.
90b – Dutch Sterling Windmill Bell with Blow Pipe
Sterling (833 standard) Dutch bell in the form of a windmill with a blow pipe to move the clock hands and windmill. 7 1/2″ tall. Dutch silver touch marks for 1925. Estate silver in superb condition with no missing or repaired parts.
About the best I have seen in this size, complete with no missing parts,
and with the unusual blow pipe feature.
90c – Fabulous Antique English Figural Desk / Counter Bell – Dog & Hunting Bugle c1880
One of the most wonderful desk bells I have had, highly sought-after, this hefty solid brass example has a clear hunting theme and would make a wonderful desk-top accessory. The bell is rung by the pressing down the lever to the side which then rings the bell, this one has the most wonderful crystal clear ring, a really good sound. The central column joining the bell to the base features a large hunting bugle topped with Oak leaves and acorns, through the centre of the bugle stands the regal looking hunting dog. Victorian in era, dating to around 1880, it remains in excellent condition. The base measuring 3 1/8″ in diameter and standing 7 3/8″ to top of finial.
