Bride Bell

    Id #98 designed 1990






Figurine bells have been around for a long time. Grecian figurines date back before 700 BC. During the 1800's these bells were often made to resemble historic figures. The woman's dress is ideal for forming the shape of the bell. The clappers were often figurative as well. They were shaped as legs with slippers and under garments.

This bell is a continuation of that tradition. The figure is a bride with bouquet and her shoes and petticoats form the clapper.
