Village Antiques

Description:

This an old but still useful piece. It's brass with, what looks to be, a rosewood handle and cast iron clapper. The ring is extemely sharp and clear. It's not large enough to have been a school bell but was more likely used, as I have done, at the bed side when ever I was taken ill. It is a much nicer way of summoning ones spouse to bring some hot soup, an aspirin or a warm beverage. I am only willing to part with it because I got a flue shot this year and probably won't need it.
