WALNUT & COPPER FULL OCTAVE HANGING DINNER GONG

£845.00

WALNUT & COPPER FULL OCTAVE HANGING DINNER GONG.  M & S B Patent.  Circa 1900.

This unusual Hanging Dinner Gong dates from circa 1900.

Mounted on a solid Walnut Shield are 8 purpose-built Copper & Brass Discs, all stamped M & S B Patent.  They sound a full octave when struck by the two strikers.

Imagine the possibilities.  With a little practice you can summon diners to the table with tunes as diverse as Old MacDonald and Ode to Joy.  It makes a good, rich sound.

The Gong is fitted with two back plates for hanging.

The Copper is a lovely, rich colour and the Walnut has a good patina.
