In the 1950s and early 1960s, Sarna sold all kinds of bells. They were cast brass and hand carved in the “cottage industry” of India. Often clear colored enamel was painted into the carved surface. The bells frequently had themes of children’s rhymes and fables. This is one of those bells. They were sold in the “5 and dime stores”, GC Murphy, Kresge, Woolworths, and other low cost general stores. They were usually on a cord with several other bells and hung as wind chimes.
