The crown and ER represents “Elizabeth Regina” or “Edward Rex” and would have been produced by an English Foundry that is chartered by the Royal House. The bell appears to be bronze and would certainly be consistent with a ship or steamboat bell. That is about all that I can add. Perhaps one of our English members can provide more information as the rings on the skirt are unique and probably will help identify the founder.
