The bell that is shown and described is commonly known as the “Evangelist Bell” and has the for 4 Gospel Writers and their symbols, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. These bells have been made as souvenir bells at European religious sites for over 50 years. Some have great details and open grill work and some have poor detail and have prominent mold marks. Most have the open loop handle, but some have been cast with a figure of Jesus as a handle.
