Antique Fredericktown Ohio Dinner/School Bell

Description :
I have a Fredericktown Ohio Cast Iron Bell and in good condition. and is more than 100 years old. I was told it came from a school that was torn down. The bell was painted with cast iron paint some years ago to keep it from rusting. Clanger (on the handle) has is off for storage but goes in easily and it is loud! This Bell was manufactured by Foote Foundry of Fredericktown, Ohio. Foote Foundry stopped making bells in 1910 so this bell is over 100 years old. Though they still make precision cast machine parts. The main company salesman to promoted the Fredericktown bells was Myron T. Herrick who became Governor of Ohio in 1904. Markings on the cradle read: 'Frederick Town Ohio' and 'Z' 'Z' on the other side. Markings on the bell is only a 'Z' The Bell measures 15" in diameter, 47 1/8" in circumference at bottom of bell. Weighs 34 Pounds including the Clapper. Free pickup and I can hand deliver it to anyw in the Puget Sound / Seattle area. /index.htm Please feel free to email with questions. $9.99 start with no reserve.
