COLLECTION ONLY FROM Market Drayton TF93LP. Very Heavy and Large Antique Cast Iron Metal Church / School / Factory / Tower Bell approx: 29.8kg 65lbs Genuine Rare.
Maker possibly Naylor Vickers Sheffield around 1850s? There's a piece of iron missing from the yoke, where the bolt goes through on one side, could be sorted with simply adding a washer when a bolt goes through. I will try to sort it before end of listing.This has a very loud ring,, it having been swung to check it. There's other wording in addition to "VICKERS", but they are really hard to make out. It could be lovingly restored or kept in it's current condition to show the many years of weathering exposure to the elements, whilst housed in a bell tower.
Unsure what the numbers read, possibly 3779. Please see all the photo images attached to the listing for condition, nothing is hidden.A deduction was made from the shown weight on the scales because a metal plate had to be added otherwise the bell wouldn't rest on it. Suitable for a serious industrial salvage collector or museum. Some added information from a kind eBayer. The word you are unable to decipher is Naylor, as the bell was cast by Naylor Vickers of Sheffield (Google'Naylor Vickers' for more info). I've searched this myself and the following info was found After 1844 there was no further mention of Naylor, Hutchinson, Vickers and Co in the local newspaper so presumably it had then changed name to Naylor, Vickers and Co. Measures approx: 15 inches (39 cm) tall by 14.3 inches (37 cm) diameter.
