This is a VERY RARE #62 antique cast iron school/church/dinner bell with metal wall bracket. It comes complete with all working parts...the coolest thing about this bell is when it was made, 1882...now that's old!

We never had a dinner bell, but Grandma did and called the family in from the fields at dinner time.
