    exactly what I wanted
    This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

    My house had this kind of doorbell when I first saw it, but the previous owners took it with them! So I was happy to be able to reinstate a good old mechanical bell (and my friends will be happy I finally have a doorbell after 9 months living there). Installation was easy (especially as I already had the hole) although instructions would have been useful (not sure whether I quite did it right, but it seems to be working). The antique brass finish matches my door well. The bell was well packed and arrived very soon after order.

    Bell Worthy

    We live in a restored farmhouse that was originally built in 1875, long before the advent of electricity. Since this house is out in the country I doubt at that time one would have a need for a doorbell, you would probably hear the dogs barking when the visitors on horseback trotted up! When we restored the master bathroom we purchased an antique front door that still had the templet for the manual door bell on it. So now when someone isn't sure if the bathroom is occupied, all they have to do is ring the bell and quickly find out. It's a great conversation starter when guests are over. Since we love the bell so much we decided to get another one for the real front door and I must tell you that the installation, using just a few screws, was cheaper and easier than hiring an electrician! (plus its so much more in keeping with the age and style of the house and certainly more melodic than the 21st century variety!)

    Nice loud ring
    This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

    I really enjoy my new doorbell. I find people don't know it is a bell so will have to let everyone know as they come to visit. Nice loud ring so I can hear it anywhere in the house. Would have been nice to have some instructions for installation. Also, one of the screws sheared right off and I had to dig it out before replacing it. Luckily, there was a spare screw in the package.

    I bought one of these doorbells from your company about 7 years ago. Now my daughter is getting married so I bought one for her. She loves it because it is a reminder of our home.

    Great Victorian doorbell
    This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

    We have an 1850's farmhouse and prior owners had a 1960's type doorbell so when I found this it was perfect addition to our remodeling to make the house ancient again. It arrived within couple days of my order which was fantastic. Installed easy as there was already a hole in the door from prior one. It makes a great sound when turned and is so simple but pretty. I got the rubbed bronze and it was just as pictured. Can't wait til we have a visitor come ring or should I say twist it!
