are three cow bells from Switzerland and one cow bell from Norway. I am quite sure none of them ever saw a cow and should be thought of as "collectibles" only. The largest one is from Switzerland and measures 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide not counting the ribbon. It is brass and decorated with Edelwwiss and well as red and blue flowers. The second largest bell is from Montreux, Switzerland and may have been brought home from their famous Jazz Festival as a souvenir. It looks to me as if it is the only one of the four that is hand painted. It is about 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide. The ribbon on this bell is not original although all of the others are. The third bell is from Luzern, Switzerland and is decorated with the Swiss Cross and Edelweiss. It measures 2 inches tall and 2 inches wide. The smallest is from Trollstigen, Norway and is 1 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/4 inches wide. Trollstigen means "troll ladder" and is in Romsdal, Norway. It is a most dramatic mountain road with eleven hairpin turns. All four bells have their original clappers.I am listing about 50 collectible bells at this time. If you buy more than one auction item, I will be able to combine shipping and save you postage.
