Original Bronze Doorbells from Modelmaker2

Here is a stocking stuffer that is sure to be unique: an original bronze doorbell from Etsy seller Modelmaker2. We have geckos and/or anoles here in Houston (I always get them mixed up), and I love to watch them, so this little fellow caught my eye right away. The artist, Mike, models the doorbells and then has them cast in bronze; he then hand lacquers them to protect them from the elements. The doorbells, which are meant for wired doorbell systems, come with mounting screws and the illuminated button. The lizard is 4 1/2 inches long.

Mike's other designs include an anchor, a Kokopelli (shown left), a musical G-Clef, an oak leaf and acorn combination, an artist palette and an Irish Claddagh. My first choice would be the lizard, but the Kokopelli is a very close second. Any of these will give the entrance to your home that little something extra, and because of their size, these bronze doorbells would make terrific out-of-the ordinary stocking stuffers.

What: Original Bronze Doorbells
Where: Modelmaker2 (an Etsy shop)
