To heighten the eccentricity of our choice, we complimented the ringer with a bell pull. Everyone has been able to figure out this old-fashioned way of announcing their arrival.
Last April, our electrician had time to hook it up and he laughed when he saw our antique gadget. He found it very easy to install. Steve enjoyed analyzing the mechanics of the thing. Tammy was worried the sound would not project back to the kitchen or up the stairs. However, she hears it clear as a bell, even while she listens to the radio and cooks dinner with the stove vent turned on high.
We are not the only friends across the Atlantic to install this limy doorbell: just check out what other buyers have written about this unique addition to our home.
