Here’s an interesting little bell I just acquired.
All brass, including the striker/clapper. 3.5 inches high by 3.5 inches diameter. Heavy brass bell for it’s size.
I believe it to be a graduation bell, from the “Royal College of Midwives” who train at the “University of Nottingham” in London, England.
Probably the date is for a significant presentation such as Graduation, Fellowship etc.: 28-May-1950.
I am not sure what the stylized “F” stands for, possibly it designates “Fellowship” or something similar.
It has an interesting wave pattern around the skirt, alternating points and circles, that is repeated on the top with a wave pattern with a circle pattern ring setup.
The bell did come from England when I purchased it. Unfortunately I have been unable to get a reply from the Nottingham University as of yet to confirm or refute my guesses.
