Lot of 5 pieces of a bronze bell. 2425 grams total; up to 5". The main piece is the trefoil hanger at top, under which can be seen an encrusted iron ring for the clapper; but why and how the bell broke into pieces (and where the other pieces are) is a mystery, although the patina makes it clear that it happened before recovery and possibly even before wrecking, meaning that this may have been a "broken" bell stored in the hold for scrap bronze. Recovered from: Spanish 1715 Fleet, sunk off the east coast of Florida
