Once upon a time when peo­ple could af­ford staff many re­al­tively mod­est pe­riod homes had bells to ring. The idea seems pos­i­tively alien to 21st cen­tury liv­ing but savvy par­ents have started to use the bells to call kids from on high for their meal­times – one no-non­sense mum this writer knows had a fire bell she used to clang at meal­times. This But­ler bell is a much more dis­creet way to im­ple­ment the same idea. It costs about ¤96, ex de­liv­ery, from UK-based Wil­low and Stone and re­quires a pull mech­a­nism to op­er­ate it. The com­pany’s brass-plated de­sign costs about ¤135, ex in­stal­la­tion. wil­lowand­stone.co.uk
