A very rare find these days, a genuine old cow bell from Normandy in France, this would have been hung round the neck of a cow on a leather strap. Normandy is famous for its lush pasture and rich creamy milk, cheese and crème fraîche.
The bell has the original ringer in place and makes a beautiful deep resonant sound.
It shows signs of its age but is in really good condition, with only surface rust showing inside.
The bell measures 12cm, just under 5" long and just over 10cm , 4" wide.
