rare antique iron Chinese temple bell-all designs and calligraphy are raised-gilt dragon motif on rim is not-bell rings true-no repairs-chips on surface paint-brought to US from China by missionary-bell is rung by striking it with wood object-bell is 21 inches high with 13 inch diameter-on mount it is 29 inches high and 21 inches wide-piece is very heavy and needs to be crated to ship--red Chinese chair it sits on does not convey-translation of calligraphy may yield more info on history--magnificent piece
