Japanese late Edo Period (ca. 1860 / 150 years ago) buddhist bronze bell from S¨­fuku-ji ( ³ç¸£Ë ) Temple in Gifu.

Measurements diameter 21 cm H 23 cm. Materials: bronze, wood, silk. Made entirely by hand. The base is in lacquered wood. On the side of the bell trademarks with the name of the place of provenance and craftsman. Beautiful patina with natural signs of wear and some scratches due to the age and use.

This is an authentic piece of Japanese culture and not a reproduced bell. And it emits a very good sound, clear, clean and incomparable.
