Small bronze bell with original clapper, ca. 1800-1820. 5520 grams, 8" tall and 8" in diameter. Ship's bells are rare, but this one shows no markings or any other way to identify the ship, yet remarkably the bronze clapper on looped iron wire inside is intact, the bronze lightly patinated all over (some rust inside), still makes a nice ring! With photo-certificate. From the Unidentified early-1800s wreck (Dutch) in the North Sea
