ANTIQUE Vintage Fire Station Department Alarm Bell Telegraph Boxing Gong Bell

NO RESERVE...This is an ANTIQUE HUGE 17 Inch Diameter Gong Bell mounted on an Oak Backboard with some electric mechanical mechanism on the upper area...I assume this was a Fire Station Telegraph Alarm Bell , but I suppose it could have had another use...It is similar to Gamewell Fire Alarm Bells I found online...It measures overall 28 inches tall and 18 inches wide by 8 inches deep...I do not know how the mechanism worked and it looks like there are some parts missing from the electric activation mechanism...The bell clangs with a loud and sustained resonance when you push on the lever at the top...Overall it is a nice and impressive old bell...Buyer Pays Shipping.
