Very charming antique metal cow bell in very good, working condition! European in origin, this old bell has a wonderfully aged patina with hints of brass on its original welds. The iron clapper is in place and helps make the most delightful loud, deep tones when the bell is rung! Rugged and sturdy, this piece is well-made and has no cracks, holes or other damage to it. Originally used on cows and oxen, bells like this one helped herders keep track of free-roaming livestock as they grazed out of view. This bell is 4 1/4 inches high, 4 inches long, and 2 inches wide. It has a wonderful appearance and makes for a great, county, farm decor item!
