I am an artist who recently got a call from a funeral home to design a mural in the Mount Olivet Funeral home. While visiting the historical cemetary, the director showed me two bells, one was huge, has “NATIONAL BELL 48 FOUNDRY CINTI O” on the top of the bell. I measured best I could for a rough 45 inches from one side to the next and 33 inches from top to bottom.
The director showed me another one about 20 in wide by 16 in tall. Roughly.
She said they both hung from a historic chapel which burned down in 2016. I want to make the bell ring and restore history accurately.
Any insight would be most appreciated. I suspect the large one hung from the gated entry which is no longer there, either.
