Its in fantastic original condition. As you can see it comes with the original arm / support bracket. The bell diameter is approx 7-3/4 outside measurement. Just the bell itself stands approx 5-3/8 tall - from bottom to top not including the nut or the arm, or clanger.
Total weight is approx 8 lbs. The bracket back piece has 3 holes for mounting. The bell is small enough that you could actually use it in your business , store , as a dinner bell, etc. Meaning its big enough to give good sound yet small enough to easily hang anywhere you wanted.
The bell is very old but I do not know the exact age or if its a deck bell used if this size makes it for some other specific naval usage. It is in outstanding vintage condition.
Wonderful old original patina, uncleaned - all that I did was wipe off the dust with an oily rag. Please post feedback after you have received the item and had a chance to inspect.
