      Got your attention!

      Here’s an interesting bell I just acquired.

      The bell itself appears to be a standard 4 inch brass bell. Nicely turned out with some age to it- but no markings. Heavy with thick brass, with 4 equally spaced ‘divots’ round the inside edge as if some sort of stand were placed here during the pour or cooling of the bell. Or perhaps this is where some sort of clamp held the bell on the lathe when they turned out the outer markings?

      The ‘handle’ is the nose of a German WWI shell.

      No clapper, unfortunately.
