Vintage American Hand Made Cow Bell

Offered is this American Hand Made Cow Bell with original clapper. These American hand made cow bells were often made by blacksmiths or other metal craftsmen who then applied a brass wash which was drizzled over the steel. The sides are riveted and the top corners are crimped. I would date this about 1900 or late 1890's. The bell is 6 inches high by 4 3/8 inches wide. These cow bells were usually strapped around the necks of cows grazing in the mountains or wooded pastures, their purpose being to be able to locate the animals more easily. It has the original clapper and strap loop. The bell is clean, has no holes or rust and rings with a wonderful primitive tone.
