This is a VERY RARE #62 antique cast iron school/church/dinner bell with metal wall bracket. It comes complete with all working parts...the coolest thing about this bell is when it was made, 1882...now that's old!
Oh, and how about the second best use of a dinner bell…? To call to the cook or the butler; please serve me my wine, next course please…give this note to so and so, letting them know to not act or be such a bore. William Spratling ~ Silver Dinner Bell
