Re: Ahrens-Fox bell
The website firegold.com is a company that restores gold leaf decoration on antique fire engines. There are 3 Ahrens-Fox links with photos. In my opinion that eBay auction was an Ahrens-Fox bell with clapper but missing it’s undermount and decorative finial. That dome-shaped piece was never a part of any bell. Have you ever seen an engine bell with a lid? I haven’t.
