The dinner gong is made by WMF (Wuerttembergische Metallwarenfabrik). It is in the Art Nouveau style. It was designed by Albin Mueller and is rare. The plate is suspended from the frame by a silver wire element. The condition is good for its age. The hammer appears to have been originally covered in leather but now the wood underneath has been revealed with only traces of the leather remaining.
