Ganesh Antique Ritual Bell (Ghanta) from Nepal
Bell ringing is an act of daily worship for both the Buddhists and Hindus of Nepal. With a figure of Ganesh under a canopy of five nagas it is safe to assume that this bell is from the Hindu community. The wear and patina are consistent with great age, though it is extremely difficult to date metals with any certainty.

The bell is 4" in diameter at the base and is 9" in height. It is in very good condition.
