Huge Vintage Cast Iron & Brass Gents Industrial Door Bell- 8-12v
An unusual sympathetically restored vintage industrial cast iron fire bell made by Gents of Leicester England. This would probably have been installed in an industrial setting, or perhaps in a school or church. In 100% working order with a satin metal finish.
Cast iron casing, solid brass bell and steel hammer strike.
This is a very substantial piece, see the first picture for size comparison to an ordinary sized bell. The ring is loud and crisp, but deep and very imposing.

- Weighs just over 4kg
Stamped to the back "B6/8"B145Will work with 8-12 volt supply. Just above the bell is stamped "BRITISH MADE".
