NuTone Budget Door Chime ~1939

This early NuTone Chime has a build quality that belies it’s “Budget” designation. Although likely one of the least expensive chimes then in the line, it still features resonator tubes, an elegant embossed emblem and an all steel cover. The Budget rings two notes for the front door and a single note for a second door.

This chime was packed in a box suitable for gift giving or showcase display. The box describes the Budget as a “NuTone Chime Door Signal.”
