Re: Re: Old Clay bells
There is a picture of the second bell in The World of Bells by Dorothy Malone Anthony. It is in the section on “Typical Mementos”. Mrs. Anthony notes:
Mexico. Girl, 4″ high, clay pottery. Originally made by an Indian family named Rosa in Oxaca, Mexico. Bells are all handmade without pottery wheels, rubbed with quartz for gunmetal color, then placed in underground kilns and baked three days. Clay Clapper, excellent tone.
The late Mrs. Anthony published at least seven books on bells. For more information about them, you may contact her son and ABA member, Alan Anthony. To contact him, go to the search box at the top of the page and type in “Alan Anthony.” Find Alan’s posting and click on his username “Nice1todealwith”.
