This is a Dutch Windmill bell. I’ve seen newer versions that are not as heavy and with lighter detail that are sold today in the Netherlands as souvenir bells. Your bell is heavier than the more current bells and is probably at least 40-50 years old. If the original owner paid $100 for it, he could have bought 4-5 for that same price. It is an interesting bell and is a unique part of any collection.
