Re: Re: Old brass christmas bell?
I am wondering if this isn’t a hand bell for a church of “John the Evangelist”. I’d write one of these churches to get an opinion there.
The Eagle is his symbol.
I suspect the bell portion is a symbolism of a wolf (evil?) Sheep and goose (people) and man (John) as he spent his long life preaching the word of the lord.
I am thinking it’s a decorative bell from one of those churches.
Just a thought, but some quick searches on the internet haven’t shown up any inconsistencies yet.
