I am new to the Bell Forum. I am a woodworker and I love bells, always have. I loved making an oak and stainless steel belfry for my back yard for a custom bell cast by Royal Eijsbouts in the Netherlands. My dream is to make something similar for an original Paul Revere Bell. Medium, large or very large.
Can anyone help me track one down? I would be honored to give it new life.
I beleive all thr Revere bells are taken unless one is hid in a steeple people that do not know what they have. It would be a very rare find.
rphermann, I don’t have a “lead” for you where you might be able to acquire a Paul Revere bell. However, if you were to find one that is for sale, it would probably be very expensive! I’m sure you know that. The reason I’m responding to your inquiry is simply to give you an idea of where known Paul Revere bells are located as of 1976, when Edward and Evelyn Stickney published a list. You can find that list at:
“They located 134 bells inscribed with the Revere name as of year 1976. The following is a list of 84 bells they compiled directly from the Revere Company stock books.”
Please let us know if and when you are successful in buying one!
