I am hoping someone here can help me identify a bell. I am a photographer, and snapped a few photos of this bell I found a few years ago on the side of a road by a farm field. I can’t decide if the markings on the bell read ‘O.S.’ or ‘C.S.’ Bell Company. I would really like to be able to title this photo with the correct name. Thanks so much. – Amy
The maker is the C.S. Bell Company of Hillsboro, Ohio. If you do a search by putting “Hillsboro, Ohio” in the white box in the top right corner of this page, you’ll find all the postings on the “Bell Talk” forum that discuss this company and its bells. Also, if you go to prindlestation.com, you will find a history of the C.S. Bell Company and a lot of other info about the bells it made.
