Hi. Im interested in the F. Heron name instead of the Hemony name. Can anyone provide clarity on the difference. This bell seems to have the styling of a hemony bell and was found in a safe in South africa that was colonised by the Dutch in 1652.
Im truly interested in finding out the difference between the two names. Please give you opinion on this bell. Thanks so much.
Hi All. I read all the threads in the forum. Many similarities but also some differences. The bell i have has serious looking Lady as handle, prancing horses and faces The writing at the bottom read. F HERON – EXIT-ANNO-1669 OR 1639 . Bronze with smooth inside and bronze tapper connected onto handmade links. This bell is in South Africa, where there is a large group of dutch and french Heritage. The dutch settled here in South Africa 1652 onwards.
Might we have a original? Who is F HERON?
PLEASE GIVE UR OPINION.
