    We received this bell (I believe it’s brass) along with our cottage which belonged to a family who traveled a lot in the late 19th century to mid 20th century, among plenty of artifacts from all over the place, there was this little bell, just taller than an average pop can with little people on the sides, they seem to be trading products of some sort for human heads. there is a letter ‘F’ stamped in the top in an old letterpress font (like courier font-esc) I’m not sure where it came from, my best guess is Mexico but id love some more context!!!

    Here’s a link to the photos on Imgur they were too large to upload here: https://imgur.com/a/GX4pyL9

    Any info is appriciated!!!

    Quite an interesting subject for a bell. The figures look more central Asian to me.
