This is a lever operated door bell from early America, which pre-dates the similar-looking twist door bell.  Our lever bell is completely lost wax cast in solid brass, which ensures that the bell will last many generations.  The unusual doggy doorbell lever operator is mounted on the outside of the front door, and will bring true uniqueness to an entrance.

The lever operator for this set was originally produced by Russell & Erwin, and features their popular doggy motif.  We have lost wax cast this rare lever 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.  We stamp our factory initials on the back so it cannot be sold as an original, highly valuable antique.

Available in four different finishes, to harmonize with your existing door hardware.  The Antique Brass Finish is hand rubbed to a mellow brown with brass highlights, and then lacquered.  Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish is matte black and lacquered to seal and protect the finish.

The bell is mounted on the interior side of a door, and is then activated by the lever handle on the outside of the door.  The bell can be mounted back-to-back with the lever operator for direct through-door working, or used with a chain for offset mounting.

The bell has an outside diameter of 4 3/4", with the mounting screw tabs adding an extra 1/2" each.

The lever operator's overall size is 2 3/16" wide by 4 3/8" high.

This mechanical doorbell set fits doors up to 1 3/4" thick. Thicker doors or offset mountings can use the 12" shaft option.
