I have a 6.5 x 5.1 Inch Very Old Cast Iron Gong or Bell (no clapper) that I need to know if it is either Chinese or Tibetan or Other. Also a better guess at its age and Translation of the Raised Symbols Embossed all over it. Has a very Deep Dark Authentic Patina and lots of Wear where it had been handled the most around the center. Any other Information would be Highly Appreciated also! Thank You! Gary K
