USA: Door Bells: Door Bell Manufacturers
ABOUT DOOR BELLS
Door bells have been largely overtaken in the market place by door chimes. We describe below some leading suppliers of traditional and antique door bells. Some of these are entirely mechanical, others are electrical. They are particularly suitable for period properties. Please see our separate Product Guide for modern Door Chimes.
