Thank you so much for your response Carolyn. After scouring the internet I was able to find out some new information. It’s hard to tell if this is a reproduction or one that was made in the 1800’s. Of course every example I see online claim to be an original. I can’t find a single example of a bell where the seller states this is a reproduction so I can compare them.
One bell I see over and over is the bell that has a star printed on the top:
When I do see the bell with a start on top it is usually in very good condition and of course claims to be an original. But it sure seems very ornate to be used for herding camel or tying to their necks, or whatever they used them for. Who knows, but I’ll definitely do some more digging.
But in all I got what I was looking for, some form of timeline I can go back and tell my Dad. I’ll probably just go with the story of it was made in the 1850’s for camel herding. He’ll like that.
Alright, I give up. How do I post a picture on here? Never had tinypic not work.
