Heavy Antique Cast Iron Church School Bell 30kg 65lbs Rare Original Vickers A/F
Very Heavy and Large Antique Cast Iron Metal Church / School / Factory / Bell approx: 29.8kg 65lbs Genuine Rare. Maker possibly Vickers Sheffield around 1850s? Theres a piece of iron missing from the yoke, where the bolt goes through on one side, could be sorted with simply adding a washer when a bolt goes through. I will try to sort it before end of listing. This has a very loud ring,, it having been swung to check it. Theres other wording in addition to VICKERS, but they are really hard to make out. It could be lovingly restored or kept in its current condition to show the many years of weathering exposure to the elements, whilst housed in a bell tower.
Unsure what the numbers read, possibly 3779. Please see all the photo images attached to the listing for condition, nothing is hidden.
A deduction was made from the shown weight on the scales because a metal plate had to be added otherwise the bell wouldnt rest on it. Suitable for a serious industrial salvage collector or museum. Measures approx: 15 inches (39 cm) tall by 14.3 inches (37 cm) diameter.
