Crown Staffordshire BellThis item is from the estate of my 93-year-old mother-in-law, Phyllis Allen, who passed away in June of 2006. She was an avid bell collector (and member of The American Bell Association, ) who amassed 4500 bells. I inherited one-third of these and will be listing some of them over the next few months. Mom put string tags on many items with her own info on when and w she obtained it and, sometimes even how much she paid for it...or other times the asking price she had on it if she took it to a bell meeting. When this TAG INFO is available, I will share it in the listing.
