This bell has the appearance of a relatively new cast bronze bell. I say new in that the handle is clearly “sand cast” and the bell has grinding marks where the mould marks were crudely removed. The clapper is steel wire with a ball cast on it, a relatively new process. The patina has been added to make it look old. It was probably made in Mexico within the past 10 years. Max Kurillo can probably give you more details, as he is an expert concerning these bells.
