I was given these pictures of a bell. Can any of you tell me more about the bell? Thank you!
It’s a locomotive bell, early to mid 20th century. A very nice one! Google “locomotive bells”. There are several websites with lots of info.
Our good friend Roger in Canada says
THAT (DMBOYCE1) BELL IS OFF A LARGE LOCOMOTIVE.

If you will look at the underside of the round iron plate which forms the base for the bell mount, you can tell if it was from a steam locomotive. If it is concave upward on the bottom, if was curved to fit the round surface of the boiler. — Neil
Thanks so much to everyone for all of your help!!!
