Pressed glass nouveau bell ID help please ?
« on: November 02, 2013, 07:33:44 AM »
Hi again from Ireland ,

I've tried all sorts of searches to try and figure out who made this bell , it measures 16.5 cm high by 7.5 cm across the base.
I may be wrong but I think the shape of the handle is more nouveau than deco !
These pictures were taken with flash which make it look more royal blue than it is , it's true colour is more of a purple blue.
The clanger is clear glass and the handle is attached within by a flat head screw which also grips the clanger chain.
I'd very much appreciate any help with this one , many thanks and best regards from Ireland , Dave.

Sorry , I should have also added that there are 3 mould lines to the patterned part of the bell these however , do not continue to it's base so perhaps not pressed ?
