Bell Engine
   This is not in any Page catalogue, but it is clearly of Page design, with its brass ball feet, turnings and strongly-grained wood base. It may very well have been made by the successor company, Palmer and Hall. 

   The mechanical and electrical design are pure Davis, with the bell to show that rotation was taking place as the iron bar was alternately attracted to the vertical electromagnet and then released.

   The instrument is in the collection of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
