Antique F.W.Gerlach Art Nouveau Gong (missing beater) @ £21.00
Here is a delightful antique metal gong made by F.W.Gerlach. It appears in their 1924 catalogue and is marked GERMANY underneath the base. Its arched shaped top and embossed decoration on the actual gong itself is very much in the Art Nouveau style. The beater that should sit on the little hook situated on the right side is long gone, there is a weeny hole around the lower back by the left foot, and the thread is not original (a replacement by me with antique J&P Coats silk cord). However overall, this is in a good played with condition and as this is at least 100 years old I think it can be forgiven for any imperfections. The Measures 2 ¼” high x 1 5/8” wide.
