My mother lives in Ohio and I’m trying to help her sell her cast iron church bell. It’s 40″ in diameter, 29″ tall, made by C.S. Bell, and not damaged. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kim
If you click on the menu at the left where it says “Frequently Asked Questions”, you may get some help regarding the value of your bell. You can also look on an online auction site and search for C.S. Bell Co. bells and bookmark the listings and check back after the auction ends to see how much people are currently willing to pay for your type of bell.
CS Bell Co, Goulds,Blymer, Rumsey&Co large bells like that, have a sound of their own. I do not know whether the patterns were somehow tuned but they sound in tune. Most have 3 partials in notes. Bronze has 5 partials but I have a big heart for the iron ones.
