Description

This is a fantastic late 19th Century antique heavy cast iron, novelty clockwork table bell in the form of a tortoise.

This bell has been finished in a dark lacquer to give it a realistic feel.

It is working and winding and once it is set down you can press his head to ring for service!

It makes a loud but pleasant ring until you release the tortoises head.

A lovely novelty piece from the late Victorian era, most likely used in a place of business such as a hotel, office or shop, as a service bell.

A weighty piece and very well made.

Please note that following travel it may need to be reset / rebalanced.
