This unusual antique silver table bell is cast in sterling silver as a bearded gentleman wearing an Elizabethan style gown. Although the subject matter may be unusual, the quality of the bell and its ring tone is superb. Made in Germany, the hallmark shows that the piece was imported and assayed in 1901 in Chester.

Berthold Müller, an agent in London and Chester, was the most notable importer of German silverware and enjoyed a long and successful business relationship with Neresheimer & Co, a noteworthy and prolific silver manufacturer in Hanau, Germany. Like Neresheimer, a large number of Hanau silversmiths produced silver objects for export to England and the USA.
