      Joe, one of our ABA members, acquired this bell recently and wonders if anyone has seen one like it and if someone has any other information about the bell or stand.

      Joe writes:

      The bell is 9 inches in diameter, weights about 22 pounds.

      The engraving is in German which I have translated and along the edge of the bell in German it says:
      “Cast by Jacob Baechtold from Schleitheim in Year 1875”

      Also, note that in the picture of the bell on the stand, in the the corners of the stand is “JB”.

      I know little else about this bell and would like to know if anyone might be able to shed some light on it’s history.
