191b – Vintage Brass Bell Nude Lady Front of Harp Handle Similiar Erin Go Bragh
Brass Round Bell
Nude Lady Front of Harp Handle
Wire Strings on Harp
No Maker Mark
6 7/8″ Tall, 3″ Diameter
This is a different older brass bell. The bell part is round, like a half circle. The handle is a harp with wire strings. The front of the harp is a nude lady. It is similiar to the “Erin Go Bragh” harp figurines except this one does not have wings. There is no maker mark that I have found. It is a very nice older bell and unusual. It would probably appreciate a good cleaning.

Possibly a marriage, but the parts match well.

191c – Cloche liturgique extraordinaire, Saint Jacques
Cloche liturgique extraordinaire, Saint Jacques.
Ecole galicien, extraordinaire cloche coulé en une seule pièce, très intéressant un Saint Jacques, avec référence ésotérique de Janus. Dans le corps de la cloche. Représentations: catadral de Saint Jacques, Saint Jacques tue Maures, Saint Jacques trône et cross- Saint Jacques.
L’état est bon, présente un petit trou pour l’usure (voir photos), qui ne réduit pas le son.
20 cm de hauteur.

Extraordinary liturgical bell Saint James.
Galician School, extraordinary bell cast in one piece, a very interesting Saint James, with esoteric reference to Janus. In the body of the bell, representations of the cathedral Saint James, Saint James kills Moors, Saint James throne and Saint Jacmes cross.
The condition is good, has a small hole for wear (see photos), which does not reduce the sound.
20 cm (8 in) in height.

Wikipedia: James, son of Zebedee (Aramaic Yaʕqov, Greek Ιάκωβος, died 44 AD) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and traditionally considered the first apostle to be martyred. He was a son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle. He is also called James the Greater to distinguish him from James, son of Alphaeus (also known as James the Less). James the Greater is the patron saint of Spain.

Popular souvenir of Santiago de Compostela, found with good and relatively poor casting details. This is one of the better ones, and at 8″ is much larger than the usual 5″.

191d – Unique Victorian Derby Silver Plate Engraved Cherries Dinner Table Bell Spooner
This Victorian dinner bell is in very nice condition. Plating is not worn. Top looks like a broken egg due to the irregular scalloped rim. The interior does not polish and look to have held spoons, only a guess. Bottom screw and washer have been replaced that hold the bell in place.
The outside is engraved with cherries and leaves on one side and the other side what looks to be a place card for engraving a name.
The working bottom portion of this piece looks like a desk or counter bell and it is elevated on four feet. It has a decorative finial end that is attached to a curved arm with a round ball at the end that when pressed down rings the bell. A very unique example of Victorian silver plate.
Piece measures 6 1/4″ tall x 3 1/2″ in diameter. It is marked but maker is not very legible and only a guess, Derby by what I can make out. Also marked Quadruple Plate 3117.
