You are purchasing the exact 48 bells attached to the leather strap as shown.
Rare double row of bells-very uncommon style.
Constructed of brass/metal-all have a loop shank held on with a wire key. There are 46 number 1 petal bells and 2 bells are number 0. Strap is made of leather. These are very old-original antiques-1800s era.
The leather is in ok condition-it is stiff and dry and there are areas where it is broken-GREAT CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN HANDLING/DISPLAYING. The leather is old and brittle.
A couple of the bells show some hairline cracks and actual chipping of the metal from age and use. All have the original marble bell and sound beautiful.
These are smaller sized bells-most measure 1 inch diameter.
Leather strap measures roughly 48 inches length x 1 5/8 inches wide.
Overall condition is OK. You may find some light hairline cracks and original manufacturing/molding defects-no major damage.
Small bells are a choking hazard for infants and toddlers. Please consider this when selecting a gift bell for a young child. We recommend bells 2 inches and larger for any child. The U.S. Child Safety Protection Act (CSPA) bans any ball with a diameter of 1.75 inches (45 mm) or smaller for use by children under 3 years old.
