Set 4 Mid Victorian Servants Bells
A gorgeous set of 4 graduated (each bell has a different tone) servants bells, Circa 1870. Sympathetically restored and fully working the set were originally mounted on a board. The pressed brass central decorations are not a style we've seen before. The round fixing plates are wrought iron and the arms brass, I think at some point they were gilded. The springs are set to be pulled from the left, they can be turned but they're quite tight and they have little wedges that need putting back in.
There was a far bit of over painting, it's been carefully removed, the wrought iron sympathetically refinished and the arms lightly polished. The bells have had a really good clean. We've made a couple of repairs on the arms and the backs of the decorations, its not noticeable.
They could easily be mounted on a board, we have some lovely antique pine.
Overall great original working condition.
