Here’s an interesting bell I picked up this summer. I chose it, because I remember seeing one very similar to it in either an early bell talk issue or in one of my antique magazines from a couple years ago. Shucks, can’t find it now, so I am putting it up here to see if anyone else has seen it or has a history of it.
It’s brass, total height is 5 inches, Handle is 3 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches, bell is 3 3/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches . The Brass appears to be old and surprisingly heavy for this size of bell.
Tone is lousy, due to the fact that the brass handle attaches at three points so when you hold it, your hand dampens out the vibration very quickly.
It’s a unique shape, but a very poor working design.
