Lot 1471

$100

Details: This lot of antique bells is diverse as to type and country of origin. The three wooden-handled brass school bells are probably American, and are 9", 8.5", and 6.5" tall.

More interesting is the large round bell, whose origin is unknown. It is decorated with two hippocampi, the mythical sea horses which drew the chariot of Poseidon, god of the sea. This unusual bell is made of bronze, and it is 4.25" in diameter and weighs 2 lbs.

Next are two smaller, classically bell-shaped bells, one 2" tall and the other 2.75". Although both have a gray finish that looks like nickel, in places it has rubbed off on the smaller one, which looks like brass underneath. The larger one has a cast iron clapper.

There are five English or American brass horse bells in this lot, which range in size from 1.75" in diameter to 1.25". Four are petal bells or rumblers, of which at least two were manufactured by William Barton. They all have eight petals; the two largest are marked 2 and 3. There is also a bright brass improved Swedish bell, which is marked "Victoria N. 23."

Last are five small, identical, heavy round bronze bells, 1.25" in diameter. These are probably Middle Eastern or Turkish in origin, and have an acorn-like design and a shank instead of a loop to attach them.

To inspect and acquire more detailed information about this lot, please attend our live preview before the auction.
Condition / Notes: All of the bells are in good or very good condition.

Henry J. Van Lennep (1815-1889) was a noted nineteenth century minister, missionary, writer, illustrator, and educator. Born in Smyrna, Van Lennep was educated in the U.S. but returned to Turkey upon ordination, where he served as missionary for 29 years. During this time, he traveled extensively throughout western Asia and Egypt, aided by his proficiency in many languages. A skillful artist, he wrote and illustrated several books based on his travels. Published during a time when public curiosity about "the Orient" was high, these books were very popular, showing the scenery, people, and customs of Asia Minor, and discussing these elements with Biblical and archaeological references. He also illustrated scientific texts with the noted geologist and President of Amherst College, Edward Hitchcock. After losing his sight in 1869, he returned to the U.S., where he spent the last twenty years of his life teaching natural sciences and languages at Ingham University, a women's college in Le Roy, New York, and later serving as co-principal at the Sedgwick Institute in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, with his son, Edward.
