About

From our recent Japanese acquisitions travels. A personal sized antique Suzu bell, 50 inches length total Here's an extraordinary opportunity to collect and acquire a Japanese authentic hand cast copper Shinto Suzu bell complete with a long and thick hand crafted pull rope. The 5" high bell shows patina from good age, dates to the early 20th century, and was likely used by a member of Japan's Shinto Buddhist Community where it was authentically rung in Shinto ritual at some time in the distant past. This is a very nice old copper casting of a wonderful temple bell and comes complete with a 45 inch pull rope, total 50 inches long with bell. Authentically used, this Suzu bell was sourced from an old Kyoto Japan collection. This bell possesses a beautiful original old patina which highlights its genuine 100+ year old temple life. The Suzu Shinto bell contains pellets that sound when agitated. At Shinto shrines, large Suzu drape over entrances, as it is said that ringing them calls kami, allowing one to acquire positive power and authority, while repelling evil. Please enjoy an actual photograph of these bells actually installed in situ. (photo) Dimensions: The bell with its rope measures 50 inches long.
