YORUBA, BELL 1, 7.5", $150, Nigeria, SOLD
These old cast bells, of a copper alloy, probably brass, all function. Except for #3, however, the original clappers have been replaced and the new ones are fastened in with various string materials.
The back view is similar to the front, except for #10, the end (or side) is slightly narrower.
