I recently have come into possession of some bells. One inparticular I think is pretty neat. I can try to get a picture of it. It is a small bell maybe 4 inches tall. To me looks like a Queen in a etched floral pattern dress. Neat thing I think is it has legs as the dinger (if that is what its called). It is pretty heavy so I figure brass or bronze.. I do not see any markings on it. Where would I start in finding out more on this bell ?
This appears to be a Queen Elizabeth Figurine Bell. The poor quality of the legs clapper and the rough interior indicates that it is of recent origin, probably of the late 1950s or 1960s. There are many of these on the market of various ages and designs and have been continuously produced since the 1880s. This is a very nice bell and a nice addition to a collection.
