ZLW-102BT R&E Reproduction Dog Door Bell Operator

R&E Reproduction Dog Door Bell Operator 12 Inch Shaft

This doorbell lever operator is mounted on the outside of a front door, and will bring true uniqueness to an entrance. This lever was originally produced by Russell & Erwin, and features their popular doggy motif. This lever has been precision lost wax cast in solid brass from an antique original.

The operator handle is a dog's head that holds a stylized bone. Two profile pictures of dogs are on either side of the handle, and one larger full-faced dog is surmounted on the top of the backplate.

The original antique sample was found after more than a year of searching and this lever is considered to be the rarest lever bell operator in existence. The finish is antiqued to mellow brown with brass highlights and then lacquered. We stamp our factory initials on the back so it cannot be sold as an original, highly valuable antique.

This reproduction will work with either an old lever bell (mounted on the inside of the door), or with our reproduction bell . Order the bell in the antique finish if you are ordering the dog lever pull.


2 3/16" wide by 4 3/8" high overall.
