Large bronze bell dated 1774, ex-unidentified late-1700s shipwreck off the Isle of Wight, south of England. About 50 lb, 14-1/2" tall, 10" in diameter. Bells from shipwrecks are in the same category of importance (more or less) as bronze cannons, sometimes in price as well, as they are large and heavy but recognizable and rare, each ship typically having just one big bell. This one is intact (just missing part of the hanger at top) with probably a replaced clapper inside, a rather heavy piece clearly dated 1774 on one side. (Special packing fees apply.) From an unidentified late-1700s wreck off the Isle of Wight, south of England.
