The handle of the bell is in the form of a gentleman wearing a tunic and hat and holding a rifle in one hand and a hunting horn in the other. He has a moustache and he is chased in good detail.
The man is mounted onto a round plinth above a band of high relief chased leaves and berries at the top of the bell.
The centre of the bell has finely chased horses and riders out hunting with hounds and the hounds are bringing down a stag. There are high relief trees and hills with a castle to the background.
The bottom of the bell has a high relief chased band of leaves and branches.
The bell has it’s silver ringer.
The bell is 2-3/4 inches / 70 mm in diametre and it stands just under 6 inches / 150 mm high. Made of very thick gauge silver, it weighs an impressive 320 grams.
The bell has clear hallmarks – lion passant, London mark, letter C for 1977, Silver Jubilee mark and maker’s mark SC.
The bell comes in it’s leather fitted box.
The bell is in excellent condition with no dents, damage or repair.

The casting details seem rather fuzzy to me.
