        This is a 34″ bronze bell.I do not know any history to it. The engraving is Cast by A. Fulton. Pittsburgh. Does anyone have a ball park figure of what it might be worth?

        Select Picture
        Browse to where your picture is located on your computer
        Select your picture
        Click Open, image will upload to picresize website
        Click Continue to Edit Picture
        Leave all default settings as they are
        Scroll down to bottom
        Save As:
        Enter 1000 in JPG Max Filesize box
        Click I’m Done, Resize My Picture
        Click Save to Disk
        Click Save File, this will save the resized picture to your Downloads file
        You will find the picture renamed as rsz_original name

      Would appreciate some help identifying this bell. I believe it is steel and approximately 21″ diameter and very, very heavy. It reads NY Bell Co. 1905.

      Greetings,
      We have this large bell with no markings I can find on it. Need some help please. I am guessing it is a school bell but having trouble identifying and learning more about it (type/mfr). I do not have a history on it other than it came from a property on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
      Height of the bell is 16″ to top of stem, 15″ bell height
      Diameter of the bottom of the skirt is 23″
      Writing or engraving on the bell – none that I can find
      Material from which the bell was made – cast bronze with iron yoke
      This bell has a flat rectangular stem/crown/stub measures 3 15/16″ wide x 1 3/16″ thick x 5″ tall
      It is very heavy so I can not lift it to get a better image inside right now.
      Thank you very much in advance for any information and/or assistance you can provide.
      Kind regards,
      Joni

      Hello All,

      I need help identifying the following bell. I have been unable to identify the bird/eagle marking. Please see included image. The only information I have is that it may have been made in the 1940’s.

      Thanks!
