Re: Re: Kentucky bell with star stamp
Thank you to everyone who posted comments regarding the identification of this bell.
From your responses and other research I have undertaken, I would say that this bell is not an Orson Starr – which still begs the question, “Who made it?”. As I have mentioned before, these types of bells are quite common in Australian collections, yet were not made in Australia.
When I contacted Gary Spickler, he informed me that US bell manufacturers often produced different bells for their export market – so perhaps it would not be familiar to US collectors.
However, I appreciate the effort you have all made to assist in my inquiry.
