Thanks for the fast response!

Here are 3 inscriptions and a good look at the bell! I thought it was iron but now I believe it to be bronze as the patina is green and orange rust colored and magnet doesn’t stick to it. Also has word Nancy in it. I had it translated. Made in 1853 by the Baraban Brothers. Weight is over a hundred pounds. 21in diameter.

Located in Massachusetts.
