I have recently started collecting cow/stock bells here in Australia and am looking for people who are also collectors who may be able to assist me in learning more about this wonderful part of history.
My preference is for stock bells used in Australia many of which I believe were manufactured in America and Britain.
I look forward to your reply

COONEY, D. (2005). Bells of the Australian Bush. Toowamba: written and published by Donald Cooney, 145 pp is an excellent account of Condamine bells made in Queensland: a valuation guide to Australian bells is available if it is bought at the same time as the book on bells. In 2005, it cost me Aus$35. Contact the author/publisher at PO Box 1876, Toowoomba 4350, Queensland, Australia. Condamine bells are very interecting and have a wonderful history. I see them on eBay occasionally, but they are so expensive I have never been able to afford one. Good hunting! Bob
