      This one is intriguing.
      3″ diameter, 6.5″ tall, and very heavy for it’s size.
      All good quality brass construction, with a distinctly Asian styling.

      Appears to be a sort of combination pagoda bottom with an India style Aladdin tower top.
      The ‘pagoda’ bottom actually makes a bit of a twist on it’s base (it’s a design feature not damage or flaw) and the collar near the pointed top is pierced with small holes all around.
      The clapper is a solid oblong piece of teardrop shaped brass. Even the clapper hanger is a brass loop and the whole thing appears to be nicely molded. Wonderful patina.

      Any ideas out there of this bells history? It does appear to have some age to it.
