Here’s an interesting Silver plated bell (probably on brass as the magnet does not stick).
No hall marks so plate I believe.
4.5 inches tall by just over 1.5 inches in diameter.
has NE embossed on the back and a tag inside that says NE 1904 (model number I would think).
someone has penned 1964 in ink under the tag, most likely the purchase date?
Appears to be a stylized angel holding up a star, long hair + wings on the back.
I am thinking a Christmas bell but am looking for what the NE stands for. Perhaps someone out there has a catalog for them and knows what the number means?
So NE stands for New England collectors Society, Interesting.
Any ideas where to contact them? There is a New England Bells and a New England Collectors Association, but both appear to be different groups.
Interesting how most of the bells associated with NE are Disney in nature. I wonder if this is maybe Tinkerbell, as in the ‘third star on the right’?
