What is a Bell Pull.
A Bell Pull is a woven textile, pull cord, handle, knob, or other object that connects with a bell or bell wire, and which rings a bell when pulled. Bell pulls may be used to summon workers in homes of people who employ butlers, housemaids, nannies or other domestic workers. The bell pull is one element of a complex interior mechanical network which, in Victorian times, typically involved a range of bell pulls in different rooms, connected to a central bank of labelled bells in a room where servants would wait to be summoned
