HUGE! Antique 19thC *Vanduzen & Tift* Cast Iron & Brass Gong Bell *NR*
......The underside of this huge standing Bell is marked "Vanduzen & Tift Cincinatti." After searching online I found that the Bukeye Bell Foundry was established in 1837 and was later taken over by W. A. Van Duzen & Mr. Tift. The company went by the name “Vanduzen & Tift” from 1865-1894, and they manufactured bells for many different purposes. Just a few include: Church, Academy, Plantation, Factory, Steamboat, School-house, Chime, Fire-alarm, Tower-clock, Court-house.” I have tried to figure out what this large Bell’s purpose was, with no luck! The 5“ tall by 11“ diameter Brass Bell is attached to a nickel over cast iron claw-foot base and the overall height is 18“ tall, to the top of the fleur-de-lis finial. We tried many different materials; metal, wood & rubber, to strike this bell and not only did it let out a very deep “dong,” but after using the rubber mallet, this deep tone resonated for almost a solid minute! The sound this bell makes is actually very much like a Gong. (We will be posting a video of this bell ringing to the bottom of the listing, so keep an eye out.) I have a feeling that maybe this bell was used at Fraternal Meetings, but it could have had another purpose all together. What do you think? What I can tell you is that it has acquired a great old, untouched patina over the years, and with the exception of an old repair to the finial, the condition is perfect and original. ... This bell weighs just under 20lbs, so although shipping is not impossible, you may want to contact for details about a possible free delivery, if you live on the east coast. ... To make sure some er wins this huge 19th century Vanduzen & Tift Bell, it has been listed without any reserve!
......We guarantee 100% that the high buyer will be more than satisfied with the quality, condition, age and authenticity of this Large Bell or we will return all of their money.
...... Please check out our other sales. We list every day and you never know what you might find listed without any reserve!
