This is a set of Antique Deagan Dinner Chimes including the original detailed rubber mallet and the Musical Dinner Chime Music booklet. This chime was made by J.C. Deagan Inc of Chicago, Ill. and the label on the back indicates that there were 37 patents held from Aug. 6, 1889 through 1919. These dinner chimes were played on ships and railroad cars to announce dinner. The chime box has two mounting brackets on the back where it could be hung on the wall.

The chime box measures 11 inches long. 9 inches wide and 2 3/4 inches deep. The four chimes themselves are 10 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide 1/4 inch thick and they sound amazing when played !! The case is in good condition and the cords and pins are also in good condition. It looks remarkable for it's age. There is one small scratch on one chime that can be seen in the picture...upper left.

The Deagan Musical Dinner Chime Music Booklet copyright 1917 is in good condition as well, however the cover has ripped off of the one bottom staple that holds the booklet together, but all the pages are intact. It even still has the string through the hole where it was normally tied onto the chimes. It has music and instructions for using the chimes.

This is the whole set !! I will not sell the booklet separate. This set has been together for 100 years and I want to sell it together. If this piece could talk, what an amazing story it could tell.

This will be shipped Priority Mail with lots of packing material and insured. If you want any additional pictures, please let me know.
