I agree with Alan that this is most likely an Oni bell. There is an article on Japanese Oni Bells at https://www.americanbell.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=586. The print is small but you can enlarge it by holding down your control key while pressing on the plus sign until it gets to a size that you can read. Also, if you use a search engine to look for Oni bells, you’ll find several places to further research the history of this bell.
