Antique Door Bells, Circa 1920

Several images from two working door bells from 1920 and one from the 1950's. Wired such that when the brass button is pressed all three ringers are activated. Found covered in paint from a demolition job in Church Hill more than 20 years ago. It was the hope of UserX that because the door bell button was brass the ringers would be also. UserX was wrong.

Typically, old door bells stop working because the transformer stops functioning. Over time people will paint over the ringers instead of figuring out why they do not work. Finding the transformer in a home can prove difficult. Buying a new one from a hardware store is very easy and would cost about $20 in the year 2022. The transformer has three different settings depending on how loud you would like the ringer to be.

You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled.

Valued in the range of $75 - $125.
