Display strap with 16 patent (Tucker) bells

A fair number of the display straps I make are longer than usual, holding a dozen or more bells. This strap features 16 small "patent" bells that were machine stamped in the late 1800s from sturdy sheet brass. A few of these bells still show traces of their original silvery nickel plating. More about patent bells...

This piece is about 38" long from top to bottom and is made of medium brown leather, 1 1/2" wide.
