Richard Rohac Dinner Bell

0.00

Designer: Richard Rohac (1906 – 1956)

Item: Dinner Bell

Manufactured by: Richard Rohac

Country of origin: Austria

Year made: Ca. 1950

Materials: Patinated and polished brass

Dimensions: 4 ½” x 2 ¾”          

Condition: Excellent               

Description: An important design that we have seen attributed to both Karl Hagenauer and Carl Auböck, but to date we have not been able to find any signed example of this design by either.  Auböck did design a dinner bell with the same ribbed exterior, but his is a dome shape and uses a leather strap.  This example is marked on the interior of the bell with the Rohac cypher of reverse Rs and his arched “Made in Austria” as shown in the photos.  We have only seen one other Rohac signed version of this bell.  We have attached an image from the page in Rohac’s catalog showing this model and confirming that this design was his.

Beware that there are some knockoffs of this design of much poorer quality, both in materials and workmanship that have been circulating out of Europe and show up occasionally on eBay and other internet sites.  It is hard to know whether these knockoffs, which are always unmarked, were made to deceive, but we were fooled once.
