      Hello, I’m wondering if anyone can help me find out some more information about my wife’s bell? It’s been in her family for a long time. I tried to do an Google search, but with no luck. I’d just like to know a little more about its history. Thank you

      A typical dinner bell cast by Fredericktown Bells in the the Ohio town of the same name.
      The name on the YOKE ( on top) is interchangable at casting and done for various hardware or department stores.
      The UPRIGHT is also typical of this foundry and another indication the bell is an early example likely cast prior to or shortly after the Civil War.
      Enjoy
