Item:133104379911Rare antique Burmese bronze elephant bell. Possibly 1700s. The bronze bell has two bands in relief on top. Rope shape design at the tip with a large ring on top. The ball inside is still there so it still rings. Fantastic bronze patina throughout. These bells were used to hang on the neck of an elephant. There would be a string of these bells tied together and would be worn as a necklace. Elephants are working animals in Burma. A mahout would be able to tell where the elephant is by the sound of the bells. Guarantee genuine antique. Height: 11.5 cm Weight: 471 grams 'Most of my collection is one of a kind. I bought the items because I liked it for myself. They were never intended to be resold. Each item has a story and when possible, I hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled a long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. I am now retired and need to downsize. I will not be able to buy a similar item again and definitely not able to sell it at the same price. If you buy an item from me it most likely is the only one I have. Not only you are buying an item you are also buying 50 years of experience. Thanks for bidding.' I only accept Paypal. I have a 5 business days shipping policy however if I can send earlier I will.
