Re: Re: large ship bell
A Fulton Bell of any size is a rarety and has considerable value to collectors. This particular bell at 33″ diameter would be too large for a riverboat and probably served as a School or Church Bell. Some Fulton Bells of that size were used as Firehouse Bells also. Often the bell had the name of the church or school on the opposite side of the body of the bell as the Fulton name.
