Seller: shipwreckmarine1 (1,139) 100%, Location: Gold Coast, Queensland, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 143358807402 This is a very large ship's bell dating back to the middle of the last century, exceptionally heavy cast bronze. It has been mounted in a heavy solid bronze cast frame to display it, the frame and stand would certainly not be original to the bell and at a guess would possibly date back to the early 1900's maybe earlier. The bell has a mouth opening of 12 inches or a little over 30 cms. The total height of the frame to the top of the acorn is 55 cms. The extreme width at the base of the frame is 63 cms and the diameter of the base including the feet is 56 cms. This is a very substantial bell and display mount. I have no idea how it ended up mounted this way other than to think it was the original owner of the ship the bell was mounted on, or perhaps her captains. The weight of the bell has stretched the hand wrot ring which is interesting in itself having been hand fashioned and joined with a copper rivet. This bell could be used in conjunction with events like weddings etc. It is a really beautiful bell. It could also be removed from its frame and hung more like a ships bell. Watever use it be put to it is certainly spectacular. The bell has just been professionally pollished and coated in a clear metal coating.
