It is difficult to date this bell as there are no comparable pieces. The shape is reminiscent of bells from the Kathmandu valley in early times. This piece has an inscription in Tibetan language on the inside. The vertical line reads “Om Mani Padme Hum”, and the horizontal line reads, “Let the sound of the Dharma ring forth.” The clapper is missing and the bell is very worn from ringing but there are no breaks or cracks. (Dimensions: Height: 8.5 in/21.6 cm Width: 8.5 in/21.6 cm Depth: 8.5 in/21.6 cm Weight: 19.8 lbs/9 kgs)
