Here is one of my external clapper bells.
I am puzzled as to whom / what it represents.
It appears to be either an old man or a griffin (pointed ears, curled boots). It stands 2 1/2 ” high with the man bell being 1 1/2″ diameter (2 1/4″ including the sweep of the arms). The stump is hollow. The yoke arms are only hollow far enough in for the attachment rings to be placed.
He seems to be carrying lanterns on a yoke and there are interesting ‘grass?’ markings on the side of the stump he is sitting on.
I don’t really know, but I would assume it was an elf bell. A lot of them were made in Europe during the 1900’s. The ones made now are very different in stile. Don’t know if that helps, but thought I’d answer.
