19th Century Chinese Courtyard Bell with Clapper

$480

About

This rustic, 19th century iron bell once pealed in celebration or gave notice of important events in a town in northern China. Complete with its original clapper and marked with holes from being suspended upon a pole, this bell is a delightful addition to the garden, whether as a functional bell or nestled beside other bells as a sculptural installation. The bell's wide mouth and ridged bead lines give this bell unique character, complemented by its fantastic textured surface.
