Re: Re: Half Bell – What am I?
Good eyes Harry!
I do believe you are correct!
It does explain the inconsistencies I was seeing, including things like the handle not fitting tightly and how it looked so similar to the bells you described.
Any idea why they put the collar around the bell lip like that though? It makes it look like it was to sit on something and I don’t understand why they would do that extra step when it doesn’t seem to add anything to the bell itself.
