A wonderful little Swiss bell with its original leather strap and buckle. Bells like this adorned cows, sheep, horses and the like helping the farmer both identify and locate his animals. This bell is in wonderful antique condition and has been preserved with a leather conditioner and a light cleaning of the brass. If desired this bell would polish to a mirror finish however we leave that decision to the next owner. We tend to fall in love with the patina a bell develops over time.
This Bell comes to us from the Burbank collection.
