Re: Re: Paul Revere
Thanks Neil, that’s a lot of information. I didn’t realize a book had been written on Revere’s bells. This bell has a slightly different reed pattern. The reeds are heavy. There is one about 5/8 inch from the bottom edge, two just above the sound bow, two above and two below the inscription, and two just above the shoulder. The crown is just as you described with the four-cornered center post tapering up. Ive read that Paul’s son was working with him during this period. Could the son have possibly used his own distinctive reed pattern on bells he cast? Mike
I’ve added a photo to my Detroit bell post of last year.
