A very handsome large Edwardian school bell or porter's bell with a polished turned wood handle. It could have been used at a desk, hotel or boarding house reception, yet most likely used to call boarding school pupils back to lessons or in for tea. These days it provides the perfectly poetic way of summoning your family to the supper table.
