    Can anyone tell me anything about this bell? It’s 5” tall including hanger. It’s pretty heavy and has a beautiful ring to it when Struck but the clapper is broken. It has cactus on the four corners and what looks to be markings on top. Any info would be appreciated

    I tried but they didn’t come through. I might have to send them 1 at a time. I don’t know how to make them smaller on my phone.

      This might take a minute (or two)

    Unless you have a specific photo program for your phone, you will need to use a cloud service to either; post the photos (share the link), or reduce the photo size (ie http://picresize.com/). Alternatively send the photos to your computer and do the resize there.

    or you can send them to temp.gdm@fastmail.fm and I’ll try and post them for you.

    Here are your images!

    I am going to look around, but this looks like part of a Paolo Soleri wind chime bell to me. (a Google search on the name will show a lot of samples of this Arizona Architect’s bell designs.) He had quite a number of styles, but with the clapper, wind flap, and top hangers missing, it’s difficult to tell if this is his or a similar design by another.

    Perhaps one of the other members will recognize it.
