That is a beautiful “Swiss style” cow bell. It has obviously seen some use. I have never seen a bell exactly like it. I doubt that it was cast in 1776, but cannot unequivocally state that. It is clearly old given the style of the clapper. The figure on the opposite side of the date most likely is a trademark of the manufacturer. Hopefully, someone who sees it on this site will be able to provide more information. I am interested in knowing more about this bell myself. Thanks for sharing pictures of it.
