133a – Very Interesting Table Bell Cockerel Handle Marked CAB & CO
Striking quality
Superb hand engraving
Marked as per photo CAB &Co
3.5 tall bell 2.5″ diameter
Superb condition

I doubt there is any “hand engraving” but it is an attractive design at a reasonable price.

133b – Bronze Collectible BELL of Raven, Bird / Clapper
Beautiful bronze bell depicts a raven perched on a branch up on a rock.
Wonderful leaves and vines. It looks like the clapper is a stone.
It looks like the bell has had a repair, see picture 7.
Measures 3 1/4″ high and 2″ across the bottom.

The seller has completely missed the most interesting feature of this fine bronze bell,
probably cost him/herself money, but made one buyer happy.

Pictures 4 & 5 are enlarged versions of Picture 2.
A spider is crawling toward a fly trapped in her net.
The raven is patiently awaiting a two course dinner.

Usual price would have been at least double.
