Porter's Bell


A handsome Edwardian porter's bell or tea bell with a polished turned wood handle, the bell marked "W&B". It could have been used at a desk, hotel or boarding house reception. Tinga-ling-a-ling "...Porter, come struggle with my hat boxes!" These days it provides the perfectly poetic way of summoning your family to the supper table.
