My dad left me a couple of bells that have a boot clanger. They appear to be made of brass. One is a cowboy with the title of “Days End”. The other is an eagles head. They are numbered. Can anyone give me information about these bells. He was an avid collector and belonged to the American Bell Association.
These were made by John McCombie (Indiana, PA).
The casting material is silicon bronze, often with a patina added. Days End was made in 1993. Eagle was made in 1995.
So far, he has made 37 bells, some of which are shown on his website below.
Your two lovely bells were made by artist and American Bell Association member John McCombie. You can find out more information about him including bells and other bronzes at http://www.crookedcreekgallery.com
