Welcome to the ABA! › Bell Talk Forums › Small Bells › Aunt J.
I obtained this bell from the East Coast of Canada this summer.
(a plug here: Travel by Train! Get a sleeper. You will find it’s the only Civilized way to travel! 8) )
12.5 inches tall, 7 inches long, and about an inch wide (without the bell).
Bell is 4.5 inches diameter, 3 inches high.
It’s all of iron, the only replaced piece is the eye-bolt holding the bell/clapper to the stand.
Made to be mounted on a wall, this unit was recovered from a motel where it acted like a door bell to the main desk area.
Clapper is a ball on a big hook that hangs from the eye-bolt inside.
Has stylized wheels (full on bottom , quarter on bell arm) and appears to be a dinner bell form.
I am just starting to delve into the history of this bell form, so any suggestions, comments are appreciated!
Otherwise enjoy looking at this find!
