Seller: shipwreckmarine1 (1,133) 100%, Location: Coombabah, QLD, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 143300704005 Beautiful old cast iron church bell supported by gothic end frames.The bell has a mouth diameter of approx 18.5 inches or 47 cms in diameter .The rope wheel has broken at some time and been ingeniously repaired with a new piece of steel shaped and riveted in place. Please see pictures.This bell is well over 100 years of age. I have been collecting Nautical pieces from around the world over the last half century including bells, firstly Ships and buoys, followed by mission, church, schools, locomotives, industrial and fire brigades. Bells just seemed to resonate with me. The craft and expertise that goes into casting a beautiful bell is astonishing, and unfortunately a dying art. The bell makers of old could cast bells of different note and a resonance only matched by a musical tuning fork. All bells have their own voice, unique and beautiful. The bell, without exception, is the one voice that everyone heeds, whether it be a distant church bell or a warning bell, everyone listens. I have been collecting bells for some 20 plus years now as part of my Nautical collecting and they still drawer me too them. The bells that I am selling could make wonderful landscape features, adorn front entrances, decorate a bar, man cave or holiday home, or go back into service, guiding ships through the dark, calling people to prayer and presiding over weddings, whatever they do, they allways enthral. I have several bells for sale at the moment, large and small, please see my other auctions. If you don’t see what you are looking for please ask, I have numerous items still to list. If you see something you like, please consider it very carefully, because once sold, I cannot replace it due to the unique and scares nature of every single piece in my collection. Every piece I am selling I purchased with a passion as only a “ Delusional and eccentric collector”, like myself can, we are simply caretakers of our collections and now it is time for me to pass on that responsibility to somebody else, perhaps you!. The pictures don't really reflect the true beauty of this very individual bell. I am prepared to ship via TNT, please ask for an estimate to your post code. Please note I don't charge for packing and handling you only pay for the actual shipping cost. Preferred method of payment via bank transfer. Happy bidding.
