Pre-owned 1853 bronze bell for sale
This beautiful bronze bell was cast by Jones & Hitchcock in 1853. It has a 36″ diameter and weighs 900 pounds.
It has a nice crown top and the original clapper. No yoke or A-stands included.
In 1852, James Harvey Hitchcock set up the Jones & Hitchcock foundry. The Jones & Hitchcock foundry only lasted 35 years but made many memorable bells. Perhaps the last one, cast three months before they dissolved, was for the new City Hall in Troy, NY. It came tumbling down in a fire in 1938.
