By the early 1900s, electric push-button bells with cast brass or bronze rosettes had largely replaced door knockers as the way to announce your arrival.
This Georgian-style brass push bell has a high-relief ribbon-and-reed design cast with a traditional lost-wax technique. The bell's mounting hardware is concealed, and its push button features a long-lasting LED light. Available in 30 hand-polished finishes.
Ribbon & Reed bell push in finish No. 609, about $150; Von Morris Corporation
