Alan,

How’s the research going along? I know my mother (Doris Granger) liked Colonial bells and I have bought a few myself. I dug through a box of animal bells today and, lo and behold, I found four Colonials and 1 Puritan bells. So, here is my tally at this point:

Colonial Bells

1914 – 4″ diameter – ball clapper
1914 – 5″ diameter – cross clapper
1915 – 4.5″ diameter – cross clapper
1918 – 4.5″ diameter – cross clapper
1922 – 4.5″ diameter – cross clapper
1922 – 5.5″ diameter – cross clapper
1928 – 4″ diameter – ball clapper

Puritan Bells

1492 – 4″ diameter – nut for clapper on original “wire”
1622 – 4.5″ diameter – cross clapper
1622 – 4.5″ diameter – ball clapper (I would say this has a rough surface but I”ll have to have Mickey or Marie Varian take a look at it.)

I hope you are getting lots of responses from people! Bell research and articles in the Bell Tower are very important to our purpose and organization!

Thanks to you and the Varians for your work!

Carolyn
