C. 1900 SLEIGH BELLSOffered today is an Original set of sleigh bells. There are 24 bells, brass with finely detailed 'petal" design. Some bells do show some cracks, one bell is a very old replacement, perhaps pre-dates the existing bells. Original untouched patina. Nicely made bells with expertly made throats. The belt measures 84" or so with it's original roller-buckle. There are no breaks or repairs to the belt. Heavy saddle leather belt with a great patina. This set was found an in old barn, perhaps hiding for many decades. The brass has not been cleaned and the patina is truly amazing, many diffrerent hues to the brass. The bells are being held on with old replaced cotter pins. I purchased a set of replacement figure 8 pins from a well known bell web site. I will include the pins with the bells. Overall a great set that was recently found in it's original state, a great sounding set in all respects. Thank you for your interest. BEST OFFER WILL BUY THIS GREAT SET OF EARLY SLEIGH BELLS!
