This exceptional antique Victorian cast sterling silver table bell has been modelled in the form of a cow bell.


Each side of this impressive 19th century silver table bell is embellished with a panel of impressive chased decoration depicting four lozenge motifs segmented with spiraling antique dolphin/mystical fish designs, all on a matte background.


The centre of each panel incorporates an applied bead bordered medallion displaying an exceptional figural portrait; a female to one side and a male to the other.


The panels are further ornamented with a paralleling circular rivet style border.


The table bell is fitted with a cast and applied sterling silver handle, ornamented with a leaf design to the centre of the handpiece.


Either side of the handle is further embellished with scaled rivet motifs and mystical fish designs, reflecting that of the decoration to the body.


This impressive example of Victorian silverware is fitted with the original hallmarked clapper.

Date: 1897

This antique 19th century silver table bell is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The chased and cast decoration is all very sharp; it can be determined this piece has seen little to no use.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of this sterling silver table bell and part hallmarks to the clapper are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
