This is not MH cast iron, but if it were not for MH I would not have it!! Some of you might have seen some of the items my son wheeled and dealed with at Paisley last summer. One of those items was a 21' dinner bell. I have never found a dinner bell in the States that was complete, what I wanted and reasonably proced!! A vendor in the flea market area at Paisley had just what I was was looking for. So with the purchase of an anvil and some MH wrenches we also bought a terribly painted red and green dinner bell, with yoke, clapper and not cracked!!
I finally got it cleaned repainted and now placed on a pole close to the back door. I am assured not to miss another meal (like I ever have!!)
Here is what it looks like today!!
