The casting looks VERY crude, like the metal wasn’t ground down or smoothed in the process. The mountings are brass, and the bell is brass, but the dragon designs and cross look like pot metal.

I know the bell is at least 70 years old though, as I have now talked to the previous owner who had it as a door bell on an older home, and it was the bell that he grew up with as a child on his home. He is in his 80’s now. I will photobucket some pics, just because I am curious what you think.

Thank-you for helping solve a little mystery!
