Subject:Vintage Asian Bells
Posted By: BMc Sun, Oct 03, 2021 IP: 71.208.226.123

I am very interested in older bells produced in Asia and for sale on the internet. I have spent a lot of time observing what was made in the past (from books, museum displays, written articles) compared to what is currently for sale. Here is where I need your help. One thing I have noticed lately is that there are a lot of bells being offered that have an image of the Buddha on the side. It is often claimed that these bells are vintage or antiques. It is my opinion that this type of bell is a modern creation. Am I wrong? I have not seen any Buddha images on verified older bells.
