An Ormolu Base Bell
This is an incredible bell....it has an ormolu base and mounted on top is a half round metal piece with a little bead sticking up on top. One presses down on the bead which goes down to the metal part. This rings the bell!

This bell could be on a dinner table to call servants or on a counter in a shop to summon the owner.
Measurements: About 1-1/2" tall (to the top of the bead) and it is 1"w.
Circa: 1890
