This little brass bell is quite unique in several ways. First, the shape is different than the typical bell-shape. Instead of the bottom flaring out wider than at the top, the bottom on this bell comes together a bit smaller and tighter. The second unusual thing about this bell is that it has the word "Seasons" etched on it--front and back. Normally, you would expect the word "greetings" to come after "Seasons"...so why it is the way it is is a mystery. But here is a greater one. It is clear that the etching and inscription were done by hand because, in comparing them, while the letters have a planned style, the same on both sides, the last two letters are not the same. On the one side the last "s" in Seasons is larger, like a capital, AND there is an APOSTROPHE before the "S"! [can be seen in photo #2]

To say that this mysterious little bell has character is a huge understatement! It has the word INDIA inscribed on the inside. This little bell also has great patina...some red, green, and black.
