      My husband I received a C S Bell as a wedding gift. It is a No 3 upright 1886 Crystal Metal. Can any one tell me what all these markings mean or where I can look up it’s history. We also need some help on knowing what the proper way to mount this bell would be. The bell alone weighs about 50lbs. We have the hanger and the knocker. 🙂

      We have installation instructions and illustrations for mounting bells with a single upright. Give us your land address at and we will send them out to you. Then you can ring that handsome bell.
