Art Deco first began as a French design movement at the “L’Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes” in 1925. The geometric stylings of Art Deco evolved to America and were interpreted into consumer products, fashion and architecture. One of the more famous Art Deco product companies was Chase Brass & Copper Company of Waterbury, Connecticut.
I'm a Chase Chrome Manchu Bell
I’m a Chase Manchu Chrome Bell. I was produced in the 1930’s by the Chase Copper and Brass Company in Waterbury, Connecticut. My 1936 Chase catalog number is 13006. My handle is Bakelite and a handsome shade of light olive brown. I am 3 inches tall X 2 inches wide. I’m designed to wiggle a little when I’m rung. That way, my sound is crystal clear. I’m marked with the distinctive Chase centaur mark. I’m in great condition.
