Crotal Bell (one for OXgirl)

Post by Bargeman » Sun Jun 18, 2017 5:56 pm

Once again we hit the North Hants pasture, but this time Derek had his AT Pro as the Deus was on low charge. Now a few crotal bells have come out of this permission, but not equally between the three of us, I have had one broken one, Bob has not found one yet, but Derek has had four, and all of them ring.

But this is different, this is a peach of a bell, and as it happens it is also the same sizes a peach too. ::g

That's a nice crotal bell, it's in great shape, one of my "would like to find" items, only found a fragment. I believe Oxgirl would like to find one too, no doubt green with envy when this is seen

Well winkled, from quite deep by the looks of the hole?

Well found (and carefully extracted) - Amazing - could use that as a doorbell! Cat-sized one still on my wish list...

Well done, Robert Wells foundry 1755- 1825, Aldbourne.
Managed to find part of one of these last year, luckily it had the letter " R " on that piece to ID it.
Cheers ::g

Oh wow that's a beauty l;. l;. None of the ones I've found have been anywhere near that size and none have had a proper foundry mark either (I had a hammer on one but that doesn't really count). Looks like you and Derek are digging in an area that had a bit more money than the peasants round here :D

Congratulations - an absolute corker!

P.S. sorry not to have been in touch, life has been very busy and I haven't detected in weeks >:P will sort myself out and get the detector fired up this weekend if it really is going to be a little cooler ::g
