Re: Re: Dutch Belguim Girl
Please note: The bell I have posted below is not exactly the same bell as the one Garry has posted. Notice the difference in the bodice of the dress and the shape of the apron. I suspect that several versions of this bell have been made by various companies.
The October 1984 issue of The Bell Tower has four pages from an old catalogue of the Pearson – Page – Jewsbury Co., Ltd. of Birmingham and London. There are pictures of many of the familiar figurine bells included on these pages, including this bell. Unfortunately, there are no names attached to the bells but at least we know these bells were sold by Pearson – Page – Jewsbury Co. I’m sure we have members who have copies of this company’s catalogs who may be able to find the names.
The Bell Tower is the official publication of the American Bell Association International, Inc. Reprints of articles are available from the ABA Historian for the cost of copying and postage.
