I have a old large cast iron bell dating early 1900’s or earlier.There are no markings besides the 44 on the yoke.The wheel is made of wood and is 52 inches in diameter.Fully operational with all parts intact.
I believe this to be an 1880-1901 Cincinatti Bell Foundry Company,Blymyer Norton & Co.of Cincinatti bell.
This bell is or sale in Chippewa Falls,Wi
I only found one other 36″ and the asking price was $4500 without the wheel so let me know if you have an idea of a rough selling price
Zommerz: You are correct about the maker. It’s impossible to guestimate the value of any bell. American-made steel bells are not scarce and the market for one this large is very limited. It’s not something a few people can load into a pickup. Because of the wide exposure eBay is your best bet. Start it at a hundred and in a week you’ll know what it’s worth in the current economy.
