Antique petal bells, #00 size, approximately 7/8 " diameter. Most are from the late 1800s and early 1900s; a few are from the early 1800s. Bells supplied will be similar in general appearance to the bell shown, but details may vary.
Many people who want to buy these very small bells tend to be quite particular about their appearance and condition, so please be aware that I do not have any perfect #00 bells -- meaning bells with a crisp, full "daisy" pattern AND complete, legible size marking AND pristine condition AND clear musical sound.
Please tell me in the Notes section below what qualities are most important to you, and I will send bells that best fit your needs. Here is what to expect from the #00 bells I have in stock:
I have no bells in stock that are clearly marked with a "00" size marking. Some manufacturers did not put a size marking on their #00 bells. For bells that are marked, an off-center "0" is generally visible, but the second "0" will be illegible or missing
The condition of the "daisy" pattern will vary from faint to reasonably crisp. If you purchase more than one bell, expect variations in the condition of the pattern from bell to bell
There will be no cracks in these bells from use, but there may be casting defects -- small holes from air bubbles or irregularities in the throat (slit)
The sound of these bells will vary widely. Due to their size, all have a high, light sound, but some bells have a quiet, faint sound and others are a little louder and more musical
