Winkworth Ambulance bell

Winkworth produced bells for use on many types of vehicle. Some were electrically operated. This is a manually operated ambulance bell. I would be interested to hrear from anyone who can refer me to the history of Winkworth bells.
The diameter is 14cm.

The first photo shows the bell mounted on a new wrought iron bracket made to match the Lowes entrance bell. Made by Stuart Lowes it matches the style of wrought iron brackets of several bells I have grouped together in my display as you can see on another photo. The other photo shows the original bracket on the bell when I bought it. Better or worse?
