      This Bell came from the Estate of my late uncle, Keith Bell, and I believe it probably came from his mother’s (my grandmother) estate at some point. She had a few Bells, but I cannot remember them specifically.

      I am thinking of giving it to my granddaughter for her birthday this September, and would like to know more about what it is, where it came from, how old it is and anything else of a historical nature that can be learned.

      I would be very grateful to anyone who might be able to shed light on this.

      Hi,

      Your bell was sold by Tiara Exclusives of Dunkirk, Indiana. They were a spin-off of the Indiana Glass Company and existed from 1970-1998. Tiara Exclusives never made any glass objects, but they sold glass items from several glass companies but primarily from The Indiana Glass Co. Your bell was sold as a “Sandwich” pattern and made in several colors. Three of them are shown in my book on “Collectible Glass Bells of the World”.
