Must see in person to appreciate these. You are purchasing the exact 38 bells attached to the leather strap as shown. Strap measures around 7 feet long. It is in good pliable condition with but does show some age cracking and distressing-to be expected this is very old.VERY RARE SELECTION OF BELLS ON THIS STRAP! These are all smaller sized bells. Size 1, 0, and even 00!!! Zeros and double zeros very rarely come up for sale-especially with this pattern.
The following bells are included with this strap. 7 bells which measure 1 1/8 inch.No number markings-classic petal pattern. 10 bells which measure 1 inch-marked #0 size bells and classic petal pattern. 21 bells which measure around 7/8 inch-no number, petal pattern with unusual dotted design-never seen.
There are 38 total bells all have the U type shank with wire clips. I believe all of my measurements are accurate however I could be 1/16 inch off or so. Some bells have hairline cracks and are aged/distressed.This is to be expected given the original use and nature of the bells. Not mint-not perfect-not supposed to be.
No major damage to any bells. Appreciate these for what they are and where they have been. All have the original jinglet inside and make noise.
Overall sound is beautiful when ringing as a set. These are very old-original antiques-mid 1800s era bells. The item "38 Antique Horse Sleigh Bells Small Sizes #00 #0 #1 Vintage Leather Jingle Bell" is in sale since Tuesday, April 23, 2019. This item is in the category "Antiques\Primitives".
