A relatively heavy vintage solid cast brass hand bell, engraved and embossed around the sides with animal figures and with the upper band of the bell bearing the Latin words Leo, Aqvila (eagle), Agnvs (Iamb) and Pelicanvs. This type of bell is known as a Sanctuary or Sanctus bell and has religious connotations. The bell has a lovely clear sound.
The bell stands just over 3in high to the top of the looped terminal and measures just over 2.5in in diameter at the basal outer rim. Exact age unknown as there are many versions of this beel but this one is believed to date from the first half to middle of last century. Weighs just over 250g.
