This is a modern reproduction of an older “Hemony” bell. This particular bell was probably cast in Korea as many of the modern versions were cast there. It is unclear which bells were ancient and whether they were cast by a Hemony, but in general the older bells are heavy cast bronze and have a heavy elongated bronze clapper that is one piece and attached to a loop that was cast into the bell.
