Vienna Bronze Gallery presents:

A fine old Austrian bronze bell push.

 

A humorous smiling elephant sits on the bell push.

 

The tusks are broken off. You can see the remainders inside the holes. We believe that the button is made of ivory.


This is a cute piece. Do not forget to visit our collection of bell pushes. They used these bell pushes to call their servants. Here is an excerpt of some examples from an old catalog.

 

 

In Vienna and other cities they had many wealthy and aristocratic households. Most cooks, servants and others came from less wealthy countries of the Austrian Emporium like from Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia etc. When you go through the thick five or six volume telephone directory at least half of the names you find stem from the cited countries.


The immigration is the major reason for the famous and diverse Austrian cuisine and pastry. Even strange words found entrance in the language and many Germans or people who have learned German  have the one or the other difficulty.
