Here's a darling lot of Authentic, Original Antique Sleigh Bells, Bell & Percussion Triangle - Beautiful Chimes! For decoration, display or even to still use! Wonderful primitive works of art, a pieces of our timeless history!!All items, for their age, are in great condition! The sleigh bells alone date to early 1900's if not late 1800's!!! Over the ages, the brass and metal bells have rusted and this look is very attractive! The Sleigh Bells - again these age to very primitive early 1900's if not older! On the original leather horse strap, sadly it is broken but we are including the leather piece because the buckle tho rusted is intact. The main leather strap features 7 decoratively etched, wonderfully patina rusted brass bells that are visibly marked with the number "4" on them. There is slight damage to only one of the sleigh bells, but it still chimes! Together they are not only attractive, but again chime wonderfully! The Metal Bell - All the welded folds and rivets on the bell are perfect, there is no major dents, no splits nor cracks only minor wear as this bell was obviously used at one time, either as a cow bell or perhaps a dinner bell or ? One thing is certain, it is charming, very, very old, and still has a beautiful chime as the intact and secure clanger sings loud and strong! The bell measures approx. 3.5" tall, the bottom is 3" x 2" and the top is 1.5" x .5". The handle measures approx. 1.5" across and has an additional tubing portion welded over the handle that rotates around.... The HandMade Metal Percussion Triangle - a very unusual item to find, yet a definitive very old antique the triangle is made of a very solid, strong metal no doubt handmade and hand bent as they did back in the day. It is rough, it is rusted with patina, and it is beautiful and sounds amazing in tone! The triangle's base measures 7", the sides are 6" x 6". The handmade gong, again a solid metal, is 5.5" long and the pieces are held together with knotted very old twine. This is an antique item that is very rarely found, and we felt it was a wonderful addition to the sleigh bells and metal bell. Beautiful bell tones, each with distinctive sounds, chimes and all have their differences as well! An absolutely magnificent lot of decorative and still usable musical items for us today! These items btw were found at an antique sale in southern Wisconsin, along with tons of other late 1800's to mid 1900's antiques and collectibles.... these are the real thing!
