      Many collectors of metal table bells have one or more made by the Pearson Page Company (1907-1933) of Birmingham, England, which became Pearson Page Jewsbury in 1933. Bells of this period are not marked. PPJ became known as Peerage after 1945, and many bells of this period are marked “PEERAGE” and/or have the familiar “gumdrop” brass clapper.

      I have PDF scans (11 pages) of the 1925 PP catalog and of the 1933+ PPJ catalog. There were made from photocopies of a photocopied catalog. The details are not crisp, but the bells are generally recognizable. There are two versions, a lower quality scan in Black and White (551kb), and a higher quality scan in Grey Scale (11.1mb). If anyone wishes a copy, you may contact me at the email address below. Please specify BW, GS, or both. Warning – if you request GS then your email service must be able to accept an attachment of this size. If not, it will probably reject it and not notify you that an attempt has even been made.

      The HiRes version has much better detail than the LoRes version. However, some people have had a problem with the 11.1mb HiRes scan as their email provider will not accept an attachment over 10mb. I have split into two parts, 6mb and 5mb, and these seem to go through.

      If you request an email be sent to you from the address above and you use a “safe list”, please be certain that this is an “authorized” address so your email provider will not arbitrarily reject it.
