A lovely antique silverplate bell. The bell has 2 engraved inscriptions including "9th May, 1911, Golden Wedding, 9th May 1861" on one side and "October 1884" on the other. I wonder if the couple was married for 73 years, hence the second date, it would not have been unusual since people were married quite young in the early 1800s. The bell has a gold wash on the interior and the original ringer, it has a very pleasant delicate ring. The bell stands 4 5/8" high and is 2 1/2" in diameter at the base. It is in very good overall condition. There is tarnishing. The bell would make a wonderful addition to an antique Bell or Wedding related collection.
