Hi Carolyn!

Interesting information on Jenny Lind.

I have also been continuing research on this bell. From my contacts “across the pond” they are of the opinion that this is a figural bell representing a Milk Maid as opposed to a specific person. I do know that these bells were either of a specific person or to represent a class/job type by and large. So it is possible and the head gear is certainly much more of a ‘rural’ style so that is possible too. I am reluctant to put it down to a Jenny bell as it simply does not seem to have the ‘style’ (dress is of a plainer nature as is the hat) that I think she would wear. But a milk maid lifting her dress out of the dirt while she walks…

Your thoughts?
