What a perfect strand of antique bells just ready for your door or hearth! The classic style of petal bells has a double line bordering each petal. This doubled line looks a bit like a horse shoe, so some people call these "horse shoe bells." The number of petals per bell and the spacing between petals varies from maker to maker. These are #2 size and approx 1 ¼” in diameter. They have an impressed 6 petal design around the throat of the bell and have a shank that goes through the leather and is fastened with an S shape wire. They have a beautiful sound when the strand is shook. It definitely makes you hear the horse going down the road and think of mistletoe, holly and snow! The leather strap is still in very good condition for its age. The brass bells could use a polish but I will leave that to the new owners.
Some of the material quoted above comes from Classic Bells website.
