      Hello, I’m new here–and I hope someone can help me. We have received a large WOOD bell. Solid at the bottom. Picture is attached. Any ideas about the history of this? Was it a mold of some kind?

      It may be a pattern mold but being it has a solid bottom there be no way to form a core. Strange one indeed.

      What makes you think it is a bell? Does it have a clapper? Looks to me like it could be some sort of counterweight.

      I think someone tried to make a fake bell for just looks. Its very odd shaped. That type of bell if hollow would not make a pretty sound. Its lip does not flare out and its awful tall at the sides.
