Early 19th Century Stylized Bentwood Hand Forged Permana Folk Art Goat Cow Bell. Incredible museum quality Stylized folk art goat or cow bell. Origin unknown but looks to be turn of century piece.
Bentwood, maybe maple with wormholes through out. The wood collar measures about 15 1/2" tall and about 5" wide. The measurement inside the bentwood collar is about 8 1/4 at its widest.
The wood collar has stylized decorations including stars, flowers, birds and a sun. The collar has hand colored incised birds and other shapes. Much of the colors including red, yellow and black are still present. Many geometric shapes done in brass or copper tacks are throughout. Bell is a hand forged and marked Permana No.
Varrone Permana are bells made in northern Italy. Bell has a nice brass old age patina, and has a nice deep tone when rung. Leather strap is dry and stiff but still together. The animal that wore this highly stylized folk art collar had to be important for the owner.
