Having a doorbell like this is kind of like having an inanimate butler - it greets you, says 'how do you do', and even sniffs a little because it may be cold out. The detailing is remarkable and the bronze will turn that beautiful verdigris over time (or just a little polish to keep that rosy shine). Pull and bell are made of bronze, bell body is made of cast iron.
Condition: Excellent antique condition. A spring has been replaced to keep the bell in good working order. Some surface wear and patina commensurate with age.
