Japanese Huge 18 Inch Antique Temple Shinto Prayer Bell, Genuine Historical Item
Located in South Burlington, VT
Historical Bell- Immediately Useable First ever to be offered A genuine temple used de-accession 96 inch prayer bell with original wooden handled rope from a shrine in Nakamura Ward, Nagoya, Japan An extraordinary opportunity to acquire, collect, use and display the largest scale 18” temple bell of this kind we have ever seen in private hands- including its original wood and hemp rope pull- a Japanese authentic hand cast copper Shinto Suzu bell. The auspicious temple shrine from which this bell comes, was founded in 1156 to honor Ojintenno, who was the 15th emperor of Japan. It was commissioned in part by Minamoto no Tametomo, who was a famous Samurai, who is known as possibly being the first samurai to commit Seppuku. Its big 18" high and 12" diameter bell including a massive hand carved wooden pull handle measuring 17 inches in length shows patina from great age, dates to the late 19th century, and was formerly rung outside a Nagoya Temple great hall where it was enjoyed by members of Japan's local Shinto communities. This bell was authentically rung at this temple shrine. We will include the original 96 inch rope pull with massive 17 inch long hand carved wooden handle. In total, this is an extraordinary copper bell which includes its rare original wood and hemp rope pull. Important: Please view the actual insitu photograph of this amazing relic before it was deaccessioned. This huge old bell dates to the late 19th century period, displays an impressive patina from age, and sounds impressive. It's lower half portion has been purposely hand-hammered by design to improve its sound- this is not damage. The Suzu Shinto bell...
