We recently acquired a tarnished brass bell that looks like it was a ship bell. The bell itself is 8″ in diameter and 6″ high. Approximate weight is 8lbs. On the inside in what appears to be hand engraved are the following initials: IGX I.C.W.T. 1641. An ICWT is also stamped on the outside near the rim. Any idea what this is? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
If you can help, please post a response.
