One dozen bells, $11 – $1000, something for everyone.

186a – Golfer Brass Hand Bell
Height approx. 9 cms, Weight approx. 220 g, With clapper
Golfer carrying a bag with 3 golf clubs, stood on a golf ball.
The back of the bell is embossed with the words TUBAL CAIN PRODUCTS

This is the first copy of the Dunlop 31 bell, made in England after WW2.
There are later copies, unmarked, made various places, usually of lower quality.

Much friendlier price, though lower than usual.

186d – An Unusual Brass/Bronze Vintage Lady Man Court Jester Bell
This unusual Brass or Bronze Vintage Lady Man Court Jester Bell stands approximately 3 inches high and weighs around 214 grams. It has great detail and patina and a pleasant tone, although the actual clapper appears a little large/long for the Bell and so may not be the original.
