Pool of Hayle Dinner Gong*
Stylish copper and brass dinner gong made by J & F Pool of Hayle, similar to the one illustrated on page 33 of Colin Pill’s book ‘Cornish Art Metalwork’.
With the typical and very recognisable Pool hammer work and lovely, decorative riveting, this is a pleasing design with the addition of understated repoussé Art Nouveau motifs.
The circular brass gongs for these pieces were imported by the company from Burma and this is original.
Pool design no 1628 and marked Hand Made on the back.
Width at the widest point is 39 cm and the height 33 cm.
