      What are tiger bells?

      Tiger bells are bronze jingle bells. Jingle bells are globularly shaped, hollow and have a pellet made of metal or stone inside which produces the sound when the bell is shaken. Tiger bells stand apart from other bells because of the peculiar design on the surface: a stylized tiger’s head. Very often the hoop is rectangular. On the top half of the bell’s surface you often see one or two Chinese characters and some curls and curved lines, possibly floral motifs.

      A very proffesional history of asian Tiger bells was written by Fekke de Jager and you can find it at:

      Oktay,

      Please go to viewtopic.php?f=19&t=435&p=785&hilit=Evangelist+Bell#p785 and look at the picture of the Evangelist bell at the bottom of the page. Is that like your bell?

      If you send the pictures to me, I will put them with your posting. Please send them to coordinator@americanbell.org.
