This large cast bronze ship's bell weighs in at 14.15 kg (31 lb). The diameter of the throat is just under 28.5 cm (11¼") and the height is approximately 25 cm (10"). It includes a heavy cast bronze donger/clapper
It is in great condition (there are no hairline cracks or other major imperfection)
Its age is hard to estimate, but going on the patina of the bronze and the type of shackle used I would say it's relatively old, but not necessarily antique.
Note: The shackle is also made from brass but the bolt and nuts are steel.
